Yarn bombing in Fairfield!

Local Fairfield fibre artists welcomed us on our first day of opening at 1704 Lillian! A perfect way to bring in the new year in our new shop! We had an amazing move, so many people helped us every step along the way! We are truly blessed to be a part of such a beautiful community. Thank you.

A creative community as well! Including a "wonderful woman" who spearheaded the project, and  "Grandmother's Legacy". Check out GL's blog to see and hear about the visit we had the night before we opened... a behind the scenes of yarnbombing!

Should this inspire anyone else to yarn bomb, we have a lovely "Cozy Ride" that is a bit worn out by the downtown streets of Victoria. Perhaps a stray granny-square might find its way to Fairfield, and we can perhaps liven "Cozy Ride" up again!  I am sure we might be able to find a partial ball of yarn in the Scratch Patch, should you be so inclined!

If you have not been to see the new place, you should come, it is really awesome! We have string art shelves, old growth salvaged cedar shelves, Indian block print floors, and of course lots of new beautiful fibres and hand made goods. The store looks and feels a million times better than the old space, which was also really awesome. Awesome squared!
Last month we had two give-aways! Kerri, you won the zemi, I sense a care package on its way to the Rhubarb Ranch! Cate and Jean, you each win a Tricsky notebook. I would love to know what you think of them! Thanks so much!!
