Wrapping up my Holiday show season in my hometown at an event full of all the things that make for a wonderful Christmas celebration.
Aside from all the best offerings from local vendors, there will be a canteen and gift wrapping station.
Happening at the Merrickville Community Centre at 106 Reid Street in the picturesque village of Merrickville.
Handmade and homegrown, this market is one to include in your Thanksgiving weekend plans.
A family event with hay rides, canteen and so many creative souls.
In the most perfect setting to spend a day at.

With Summer days slowly growing shorter, the pull towards more homey pursuits is undeniable. Creating a cozy and comfortable space inside the home is a major part of Autumn in the wheel of our year.
Join me in a needlefelting workshop in which the end result will be a sweet little owl ornament as featured in the above pic. Ready to decorate any corner of your home….welcoming the arrival of Fall.
Registration is on-going under the Homestead Sales section located here.
Prepare to welcome Autumn in - the best season to my way of thinking.
Over 80 vendors will be in attendance. Bringing their best.
I will have a selection of Autumn inspired home decor pieces, some new photo cards and of course, my LittleWool folks will be along for the ride too.
Hope to see you there.

This September, during what I view as the sweet spot of Summer, we will be hosting a tour of our homestead. Showcasing all that goes on here throughout the wheel of our year.
Tis the season for mapping out what the next year looks like. Laying the groundwork for new growing spaces and renewing the old begins now. As part of the tour we will be relating our process from our early days of working this land, current day realities as well as what we hope the future looks like here.
Bring any questions you may have.
Also, include farm appropriate footwear as there are spots in our garden area that are very much works in progress.
We look forward to seeing you on September 8 from 1-4.

Back again after the success of last year's event. The Art of Dressing fashion show is exploring the idea of evolution this time around.
106 Read Street, Merrickville, ON
A unique show with food, wine and music to help highlight the incredible collaboration between 15 local artists.
All the unique and one of a kind pieces featured in the show will be available for purchase in a post-show market.
For more info check out The Art of Dressing.
There was a time when woollen mills were part of the landscape of many Canadian towns - creating blankets and clothing with the warmth and longevity needed to make Winter survival possible before the advent of insulation or forced air furnaces.
Plenty of these blankets still exist today - and in fact are enjoying a resurgence of popularity thanks to their "vintage" status. While many show signs of age, there is the opportunity to create new beauty from these woolly items of historical and natural significance. They provide a background for new creations that carry the original intention of warmth into our homes once again. Just in a slightly different way.
Join me in a workshop where we will explore wool felt as a medium and in the process create a table mat similar to those pictured above. Supplies will be provided.
Cost: $50 includes all materials including tea and snacks.
The on-line payment option found on the Homestead Sales page of our website secures your registration for this workshop.
