For those of you in the GTA, next weekend is the More Than Just a Yardage Sale, the Textile Museum of Canada’s annual fundraising sale in downtown Toronto. The Museum’s volunteers will be selling lots of sewing and crafting supplies including fabric and yarn, buttons and beads. Here’s the official poster:
This is a free event. Look for the tent in the parking lot next to the museum, which is at 55 Centre Ave., near Dundas and University.
If you’ll be in the Toronto area on Sunday, April 1st, I invite you to stop by the PatternVault booth at the Old Book and Paper Show. The semi-annual event showcases vintage and antiquarian books and a wide variety of paper ephemera. The show runs from 10 am to 4 pm at Wychwood Barns, a beautifully converted TTC streetcar repair building near Bathurst and St. Clair.
See the event website for a $1 admission discount coupon and a preview of some items I’m saving for the show. I’ll have currently unlisted items including magazines, leaflets, and fashion plates, as well as sewing patterns from the Twenties to the Sixties.
Please note that all pre-Seventies stock will be unavailable in the Etsy shop over the weekend of March 30th. Hope to see you at the show!
