Montreal Knitting Teas at La Société Textile
We are very excited to announce that we will be continuing our monthly knitting teas this fall at a new home, La Société Textile! Our first knitting tea of the season will be on Saturday, September 23 from 1:30 to 4:30pm.
We really enjoyed last year's knitting tea café tour, which led us to some wonderful independent coffee and tea shops all around Montreal. But our favourite little cafés are often just that - little - and our group is getting a bit too big to squeeze into some of the smaller locations. So for this year we decided it would be best to choose somewhere we could meet regularly and be sure to have enough room for everyone. We immediately thought of La Société Texile (where we had such a good time at our holiday party last December) and they have graciously agreed to host all of our teas this fall in their new location at 257 rue Bernard.
One of the great things about meeting there is their "anti-cafe" setup. The way an anti-cafe works is that clients pay for the time they spend in the space (the price includes access to tea and coffee) and are allowed to bring their own food. So for the Sweet Paprika teas the cost will be $6 per person, and we can all bring goodies to share. I'm looking forward to doing some baking this fall!
For those of you who like to plan ahead, the dates for all of our upcoming teas this fall will be:
- September 23
- October 21
- November 18
- December 9

The story of this pattern starts back in 2008 when Elizabeth and I, along with our sister Margaret, decided that we wanted to make a blanket for our parents as a gift for their 25th wedding anniversary. Elizabeth suggested we base our blanket design on the traditional Attic Windows quilting pattern, and she came up with a simple technique to knit the squares.
We wanted to share the basic technique for the Attic Windows squares, because it's so adaptable, and so much fun to play with! So, we decided to create a free "recipe" version of the pattern, that shares the basic technique as well as a step-by-step guide on planning your Attic Windows project.
It's that time of year again! Our 2020 batch of Norbouillet fleece is already at the mill, ready to be custom-spun into this year's batch of our locally-sourced, 100% Canadian yarns.
This year as we were setting up pre-orders we took some time to look through all the beautiful projects that our customers have made with these yarns over the past few years, and we were inspired to share a few of our favourites here. Thank you so much to everyone who gave us permission to share your photos!
