WEST Handmade and Vintage Sale VII

Spring has (almost) sprung here in Winnipeg yet again! I’ve traded in my wool for some cotton and linen and my hands have been busy whipping up some spring/summer accessories for this upcoming sale. There’s always such an eclectic ensemble of talent at this semi-annual event; something for everyone!

I’ve had to put a few personal sewing projects on hiatus for a while to make way for more stock, but I am absolutely chomping at the bit when it comes to sewing up some pretty sundresses for warmer months!

Hop on over to the WEST blog to see a few snaps of some of the vendors that will be showcasing their wares May 2nd :)

DAY 13: 14 DAYS OF LOVE GIVEAWAY!

Today Ashley of ChunkyKnitz is generously giving away not one, but two knit items! Three, if you want to get technical.

First up is a gorgeous knit twisted headwrap and a cozy crocheted cowl. Second item to go to a lucky winner is a color-worked beanie topped with a yarn pom pom. This item is sized small, so perfect for the little lady in your life.

Crocheting had come easily to Ashley of ChunkyKnitz but knitting had always eluded her. What started out as an experiment to see if knitting was in the cards for her, she quickly became obsessed with all things knit. Trying different fibres, tools, techniques, and patterns, she continues to grow and challenge herself.
ChunkyKnitz on Etsy opened in January 2014 and with the addition of social media, its popularity continues to grow as do the networking opportunities with other awesome makers.
