You Give Me Fever!

Hi everyone!  A message from Margo:

This winter, may your only illness be Olympic FeverGO CANADA GO!
The winter has not been too bad for us so far (okay, not counting this week), but we need something to enliven those gray skies.  Why not drop into Textures and wrap yourselves in some colour?


We are open daily, Mon-Fri 11-5:30, Sat and Sun 11-5.  
We're at 236 Locke St S.  Our phone number is 905 523-0636.
Be Welcome.

We have recently welcomed several new artisan members to our group, so come by to meet them and see what they do!  
Shelley Holden--environmentally conscious creative knits

Diane Irons--interesting new pottery

Tara Lynne Franco--clay artist  

Cheryl Laakes--costume jewellery  

Siobhan Lynch--stained glass  

Angela Sirrs--excellent dichroic glass jewellery and some splendid slumped glass

Lynne Therrien--stained glass and handspun knits

Ian Waterbury--child safe toys  

Mary Jean Monte--classy socks.


What's new:

•    A glorious array of winter gear
•    Oodles of glittering jewellery
•    Unique stuff for kids
•    Gifts and original greeting cards - and bags to put them in!
I hope you have been by to see our current show at Textures, "AT THE SOCK HOP: SOX IN THE CITY".  It features socks of all kinds, legwarmers, slippers, delicate girlie socks, yoga socks - and sock monkeys!

How to care for: wool socks.

For the wool socks, wash in cool water with Woolite. Rinse well in cool water and lay flat to dry.  No shrinkage if you wash them this way. We have to keep our toes warm and dry, and wool does the trick!
