Win / Win, right?

We’re super excited to have the opportunity to open up our Strathcona shop space to you fine folks! London Fields Shoppe is available to rent for workshops, yoga sessions, tastings, meetings, photo shoots, and other special events.

got craft? :: venue change

GC_new_venueUpdate: NEW VENUE!! Got Craft? will take place on Saturday, April 27th and Sunday, April 28th from 10-5pm in the gym at Templeton Secondary School – 727 Templeton Drive, Vancouver (corner of Templeton and Turner in the Hastings Sunrise / East Village neighbourhood). See you there!


We just received word that the Maritime Labour Centre will remain closed for an additional 11 days due to the fire in their office from last Thursday. We are currently looking for an alternate venue and are working very hard to ensure that Got Craft? will still take place this weekend. Any suggestions for a venue between 6800-7000 sq ft preferably in the Hastings Sunrise / East Village is greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the support! We ♥ our community!

field trip :: clerkenwell design week pt 1

Yesterday was another amazing day in London filled with blue skies and sunshine. The top shot was from the #87 bus which is a fantastic ride leaving Wandsworth through Parliament, Trafalgar Square, Tate Britain and drops you right in front of Covent Garden. We spent the way exploring Clerkwenwell for the Clerkwenwell Design Week which was amazing. After checking out the website to pre-register, I was most excited to check out the amazing venues that held most of the exhibitions and they did not disappoint!

Our first stop was the House of Detention where we had to pick up our registration packets. The House of Detention was once a Victorian prison dating back to 1616 and was known as a holding prison for those awaiting trial. Apparently, heavily haunted, it was then later re-opened as a private party venue. The nature of the space ensures that exhibitors present their products in new and exciting ways.
