The Crafts Dept has always loved Purl & Purl Patchwork.   Who would have thought they could get any better?  They just did!  They've moved into a much bigger space and united into one amazing quilting & needle craft store at 459 Broome St.  Having everything in one location is certainly an exciting change.  This new location has a really beautiful, sunny classroom space.  They're still sorting out details, so take this survey to help determine what classes they'll be offering.

If you're in the neighborhood, it's a real treat just to look around. If you can make it next Saturday, April 24th, stop by between noon and 6:00 for their Customer Appreciation Party.  There will be raffles, goodie bags, demonstrations, and refreshments.  Click here for more details, and to sign up for free demos and workshops.

In case you can't make it, check out my photos...

  • Oh, I wish there was a fabulous yarn store like this in Toronto! *gush*

  • Wow the new space looks great! I love that they offer so many samples of the yarns as projects. Sometimes I have such a hard time imagining what the yarn will look like in seed stitch, garter etc.

  • Oohh, sadly, not close enough to visit ... but nevertheless, it's always exciting to see crafty places expanding!

  • Oh, my! I am suffering here checking all the pictures. The shop is so beautiful!

    You guys are so lucky!

  • I'm drooling in Pittsburgh. Great photos.

  • Oh my, I would die in there! All those colours, you would have to drag me out. It's so beautiful.
