Saturday 10am to 6pm

Next week we'll be open 10am to 9pm Monday thru Thursday and 10am to 5pm Friday for your crunch time shopping pleasure! We've got tons of great gifts here for everyone on your list and for all budgets. Find a cool gift for as little as $2 for a cool pin or magnet. Save yourself the torture of going to the malls (I HATE that M word!) and support local business and handmade! It'll give you an extra dose of warm and fuzzy feelings, I promise!

I hope to see you all soon! And don't forget, I can still do custom silk screening of all my Manitoba silk screens in time for the holidays. Just bring me a shirt, hoodie, onesie or whatever and I'll get'r done!

One more thing, I'll be set up at Mozy Rue Eco Collective this Sunday for a friends and family sale/open house with some great stocking stuffers like my cards, switch plates, pins and magnets along with a bunch of other local crafty folks! You should come on down and check it out! We'll be there from 3pm to 7pm. Mozy Rue is a fantastic shop filled with locally made goodies that is well worth checking out if you haven't already. Hope to see you all there!

New Goodies Galore!!

Well, I've been busy coming up with some new silk screens for you fine people and here is some of what I've come up with!

And I'm super jazzed about my new tea towel screens! Can you tell I'm a bit of a cupcake fiend?

And my fine crafty friends have loaded me up with a bunch of new goodies today, too! Like these crazy cool i.d. cases by Dumb Chauffeur.

What's New!

Well, the first installment of This Ain't Your Grandma's Craft sale last Friday at the WECC was a success! Great traffic, great people and great times! And now it's time to gear up for the second sale at the Park Theatre this coming Sunday, December 5th from 6pm to 10pm. I've been working on some new hooded cowls to bring to the sale this Sunday. Here are just a few samples of my latest design.

I'll be sure to have tons of towels, cards, switch plates, pins, magnets and much more at the sale this weekend so come load up!

Here at the store, Wanda June brought by a few of her latest design, too!

She'll be bringing by some of her latest winter hats soon so come by and check them out!

One of Sew Dandee's longest consignors, Pego, brought in some new wallets today and as usual, they're amazing. Laura has found time in her busy life living up north to silk screen some new patterns and images for her handmade wallets. Check out the polar bear and inukshuk!

And I've saved the cutest for last! Check out these upcycled sox turned baby legwarmers made by local designer, Jolene of Hug a Leg! SO CUTE!

Starting next week we'll be extending our hours on Thursday nights to 9pm so you can all get your holiday shopping started. Sew Dandee is the place to come for one of a kind, super cool, make them giggle gifts and cards sure to please everyone on your list! Including YOU! I hope to see you down at the store soon!

p.s. It's so cozy and warm in the store these days. Another great reason to skip the toxic, impersonal malls and come shop in the village!
