Your kindness, generosity and support have made a lasting impression … you are all a hard act to follow!

And now … THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS! STITCH will be closing sometime before Christmas this year so let the sales begin. Starting Tuesday, November 29th there will be discounts from 30% - 70% offered on all inventory.

<![CDATA[How Lucky Am I To Have Something That Makes Saying Goodbye So Hard]]> http://www.stitchonline.ca/blog/how-lucky-am-i-to-have-something-that-makes-saying-goodbye-so-hard http://www.stitchonline.ca/blog/how-lucky-am-i-to-have-something-that-makes-saying-goodbye-so-hard After ten wonderful years at Stitch, I have made the difficult decision to retire at the end of December this year. Difficult because I have not as of yet been able to figure out how to take you all home with me (never mind all the stuff in the “back room”!)

I have been incredibly blessed to be able to “live my dream” for the past decade thanks in large part to the very special people who have made the journey with me.

It will be business as usual while we iron out the details.

(Whew! That was really hard … I think I have to go and lie down!)

As well as spending a few days, hopefully, resting and restoring we will spend the second week hosting two very special guests. Janet Bolton and Julie Arkell will be here from England leading some creative and inspiring workshops at Stitch. Janet’s sessions are sold out but there are a few spots left for Julie’s one day classes. Please contact Stitch for more information.

Also, please note some changes to our opening hours:
We now close at 5pm on the last Friday of each month, (sorry, no Knit Night on that Friday) and beginning the week of September 15th we will no longer be open on Sunday.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause as we all adjust to the new schedule and look forward to seeing you soon.

<![CDATA[JANET BOLTON & JULIE ARKELL]]> http://www.stitchonline.ca/blog/janet-bolton-julie-arkell http://www.stitchonline.ca/blog/janet-bolton-julie-arkell For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for textiles and a fascination for the people who work their magic with them. When I opened Stitch eight years ago, one of my goals was to bring textile artists to the area that we might not otherwise have the occasion to work with, learn from, and enjoy. At the very top of my list was the amazing Janet Bolton. From the first time I saw her work, I was smitten. Deceptively simple, her textile pictures evoke nostalgic feelings of one’s own childhood. I am absolutely delighted that Janet will be joining us this September at Stitch to facilitate two, two day workshops featuring the techniques she is known for internationally.

A number of years ago, a box arrived at the shop containing, among other goodies, copies of the premiere issue of Debbie Bliss’ knitting magazine. I was taking a leisurely “visual stroll” through the pages which included a segment (with pictures) of Ms. Bliss’ lovely studio and then … THERE IT WAS … the most wonderful, wonky, charming, little creature I had ever seen. Seriously, it actually made my heart beat faster. I was done … IN LOVE… and I have to say, I have not to this day fully recovered. I had entered the fascinating world of Julie Arkell. It has been said that “youth is wasted on the young”. If this is true, then a day with Julie has to be a way to restore those magical times. I could wax poetic for hours, but the effect both Julie and her delightful creatures has on people is beautifully summed up in a blog post called “Lovely Textiles” which can be read here and in Julie’s bio on the Les Soeurs Anglaises website. When, during the course of corresponding with Janet Bolton, it came to light that she and Julie were friends and that Julie would be happy to join her in her journey to Stitch … well, I just had to go and lay down. I mean, what more could a girl ask for … a wish list come true.

We are so honoured to have both of these remarkably talented women join us at Stitch this September. For more information regarding workshops and registration, please go the Workshops page of our website. With a limited number of spaces available, you’ll want to book soon so as not to miss this exciting event.
