Skip the mall madness & have a handmade Boxing Day at Sew Dandee!

Only one more sleep until the jolly guy in red arrives! Here's hoping you find some lovingly handmade treasures under the tree this year. And if Christmas isn't your thing, come treat yourself to some sweet handmade deals during our annual Boxing Day Sale at Sew Dandee!
Almost everything will be at least 25% off and a good handful of my makers will have their beautiful creations at a whopping 50% off! So, treat yourself to something made with love and care. You deserve it! We'll be here from 10am to 6pm on December 26th and I promise you it will be a warm, chaos-free shopping zone. Happy Holidays and thanks so much for supporting handmade!

December's Event Calendar! Support handmade!!

The busy season is upon us! Also known as the BUY SPEND SPEND season. This year your local makers have made it SO easy for you to support local artists, makers and designers! Every weekend from now on to the last few days before Christmas is chock full of amazing craft and artisan sales for you to check out while making your rounds to your favorite locally owned and operated shops! (like Sew Dandee! *winkwink*) I've put a few of these sales on the December calendar to make them that much easier for you to find. In addition to Sew Dandee, be sure to visit shops like Tara Davis Studio Boutique, Tiny Feast, Silver Lotus, Rhymes with Orange, The Ruby Slipper and all the other amazing, unique small businesses in our fine city! Skip the soul sucking malls and big box stores. They don't deserve your hard earned money. We've got everything you could ever need or want. And if we don't have it, chances are we can make it for you! Can they do that for you at Walmart or Forever 21??
On a side note: my other project, Andorah's Feast will be at the December 6th Makers Market, the Crafted By Hand Artisan Sale on December 8th and fingers crossed, the Holiday Pop-Up Shop put on by our lovely friends at the Winnipeg Etsy Street Team and the Winnipeg Makers Market on December 21st! If you like yummy food that happens to be vegan, gluten free, soy free and refined sugar free, you'll want to come track us down! We'll have plenty of holiday party snacks and great gift ideas for you hungry foodies!

Staying warm while supporting your favorite makers has never been easier at Sew Dandee!

How frickin' adorable are these locally made narwhals and octopus!?! They love hanging out with Kami's creatures on the Sew Dandee shelves but would prefer to go home with you.

And just in time for the chilly weather starting tomorrow, the lovely Miss Ellen of A Yarn Lover brought us a big pile of cozy headbands! I'm loving her new button up flower design! Come get yours today!

Toronto's Paper People Clothing at Sew Dandee!

This is a bitter sweet line of cozy, reworked sweaters turned into cardigans and dresses by Toronto maker, Jennifer of Paper People Clothing. She's going in a different direction with her designs, no longer using recycled sweaters and instead using ethically sourced, environmentally responsible new fabrics. But lucky for us she had some of her reworked designs in stock and sent them our way! The bitter part is that this is a one time run of these three fantastic designs so if you see one you must have, git your butt on down here or you might miss you chance!
