Our friend Amanda Elias has a small business on Wellington street offering workshops in sewing and other "fiber arts". Next weekend, she is hosting a Holiday market there, showcasing many local artisans.
Amanda writes, "We have 16 carefully curated artisans who make a variety of craft items from wooden objects like cutting boards and tablet holders, to jewelery made from reclaimed Nespresso cups, watercolour painted on clothes and stationery, small cases for carrying makeup or glasses, homemade natural soaps and beauty products, crocheted items, origami ornaments, science-themed glow-in-the-dark jewerly, handcrafted holiday cards, personalized holiday gag gifts, stitched items with a pop-culture theme, hand knitted kids clothing items, leather and chainmail jewerly. I will be selling gift certificates to sewing classes, and there will be a Singer model 401a sewing machine being raffled off."
Stop by Atelier Fiber Arts 3993 Wellington November 18th and 19th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Who knows? The perfect gift for someone on your list may be waiting for you there.
