And the winner is ….

We know you’ve been waiting with bated breath all week to find out who our Grand Prize Winner is!

The lucky person who gets to spend 5 days immersed in weaving, eating great food, drinking good wine, and laughing with a bunch of other wonderful folks….. nestled here in the woods …

is VALERIE DZIAK!!!

Congratulations

We’ll be seeing her soon!

It was so much fun doing this contest, that once we’d picked our grand prize winner, we just couldn’t stop.  We decided we had to add two more prizes.  Claire Simons was our lovely 2nd place winner of a $100 gift certificate and Judy Sloan won the third place Namaste bag! Congratulations to everyone and thank you all so much for the enthusiastic participation!

On the Workshop Front:

 

There are only 3 spots left for Cheryl Huseby-Wiebe’s Know Your Fibre, Know Your Wheel 2 day workshop, January 21 and 22.  We’re really excited to have Cheryl back again.  Her previous dying workshops were a resounding success and now she’s ready to bring her 30+ years of enthusiasm and expertise to help us understand our wheels and favourite fibres.

If you have been spinning for a while and don’t really understand your wheel or how to tweak it, then this workshop is for you.   And, if you think protein fibres just come from four legged animals, then there is another reason to sign up!  You will be spinning a variety of wools and luxurious fibres like cashmere and fine mohair, but you will also be spinning man made protein fibres like latte, corn fibre and soy silk.

Jane’s workshops for the year are almost full.  For retreats earlier in the year – Colour & Design still has 2 spots open.  February 6-10.  And we have one spot left in the B&B.  For more information, click here.

This workshop lays an exceptional foundation for newer weavers and advanced weavers, especially if designing your own fabrics is your goal or if you struggle with colour and sett decisions.

 

Holiday Shopping is Easy!

Are you wondering what to get your friend to celebrate their successful stash reduction?

Is your husband still puzzled by your favourite colours after 30 years of marriage?

Does he do all his shopping after dinner on December 24?

If you’ve answered yes to one (or more) of these skill testing questions, then have him call us!  We know exactly what you need and what colour it should be – a bright green Gift Certificate!  It goes with everything!  You can’t go wrong with this one.

 

For the younger ones in your lives you may want to consider the merits of the Harrisville Educational, Enriching and Entertaining Easy Weaver, Lap and Potholder Looms.  They will provide your young friend with an engaging, creative experience where they can learn a useful skill, apply mechanical ability and make a fun project all in one!
