Kijiji Finds & Custom Order

Hi Everyone!

I picked up this gem last night on kijiji. She's absolutely beautiful and in great condition. I know she isn't designed to be a real adjustable mannequin, but the height of the stand is fully adjustable, she fits my clothes perfectly and she looks great naked too! HA!

For those of you who know, I am moving my business at the end of the summer, and she will look absolutely fabulous in my new location (which is TBA!)

Any name suggestions? ....

Over the past week or so, I've been busy perfecting this custom order sahara hat. These hats are perfect for little ones, because the back of the hat has a veil that will protect necks, shoulders and backs from getting too much sun! Fully protects their face and ears as well! This hat has an adjustable elastic strap, which can be removed entirely. The front brim can be worn down or folded up, as shown in the photos below. 

If anyone has not yet registered for summer courses, I only have availability in my Wednesday evening classes. Please send an E-mail to to confirm dates! Summer courses begin on Monday July 6th 2015!

What I've been up to?

Hi Everyone!

Above is my new cover photo on my Quilter's Workshop page on Facebook! If you do not follow me already on Facebook, please do! Search "Quilter's Workshop" to stay up to date on events, exciting news, what I'm working on, etc!

Lately I've been really excited about folded star pot-holders. These look awesome in a variety of colour combinations and would make super cute gifts! (Never too soon to prep for Christmas, right?!)

I might just have to do a YouTube tutorial/review on the pattern!

This past week, I also created this little masterpiece! (If you've been following my blog for a while, you will know that I thoroughly enjoy cake decorating!) I made this tear-away cake (cupcakes iced together as a slab cake) for a colleague at my work! He enjoyed it, so I thought I would share the photo with you, as inspiration for anyone interested in making a tear-away cake.

Happy Crafting!

Brooklin Spring Fair = success!

Hi Everyone!

A big thank you to everyone who came out and supported me this past weekend at the Brooklin Spring Fair! This was the first year for the 50 Mile Market craft show.

It was a very long and exhausting weekend, but definitely worth it! I had a blast meeting lots of people and enjoyed all the events and performances that were going on inside the Luther Vipond Arena (which was where the craft show vendors were set up!)

Out of all of the customers that I had over the weekend, this little lady was definitely my most satisfied customer! I hope she enjoys playing with the pages of her Veggie Tales themed fabric book!

Definitely looking forward to participating next year, and assisting with the development of the second 50 Mile Market!

Just three more Saturday's left of my spring session! I can't believe how quickly this term has passed.
Summer lessons begin on Monday July 6th 2015, and will run every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evening, from 6:30-8:30PM
If you are still interested in booking summer classes, please contact me ASAP as there are very few spaces available!
You can send me an E-mail at

To keep up to date on upcoming events, to view photos of my work or the work of my students' you can follow me on Facebook and Instagram, by searching Quilter's Workshop :)
