It has been a busy spring chez Pip ‘n’ Milly Creations. Between all the usual family things like school, swimming lessons, gymnastics, gardening, Lego-building, movie-watching, story-reading, bike-riding and more, I’ve continued working on sewing orders, test knitting and doing some of my own knitting. I was also fortunate enough to attend a weekend workshop on Estonian lace knitting with Nancy Bush. What an awesome, inspiring weekend that was! There have been a few birthdays, lots of weeding, tending to chickens and pondering plans for the summer ahead.
The immediate plan is to finish getting ready for the 100 Mile Fleece and Fibre event which takes place on Sunday 26th May at the Bradley Centre, just east of Coombs on beautiful Vancouver Island. I attended last year and was instantly smitten. It was the first event where I really, truly felt at home and that I had found my place. Everyone who attends, from the vendors to the visitors, is passionate about fibre, textiles and handmade. They really ‘get’ what it is all about. It was a fantastic experience to be surrounded by so much energy and enthusiasm.
I will be bringing a selection of my fabulous, unique, one of a kind project bags in small, medium, large and jumbo. Of course, I am always happy to take custom orders for project bags, messenger bags, handbags etc. Gift certificates are also available.
So – you really should plan on coming to the show! Hope to see you there.
DATE: Sunday, May 26, 2013 Hours: Open to public 9:30 am to 3:00 pm
