Montreal Knitting Teas at La Société Textile

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

And if you're not the plan ahead type, don't worry, we'll be posting reminders on Ravelry and Facebook closer to each date. We're looking forward to catching up with everyone next month!

Mending, sewing, crafting

by Elizabeth Sullivan July 15, 2019 1 Comment

Lately a lot of my crafting inspiration has come from my son, who is growing and needs things, and from my goal to live more gently on this earth and think twice before buying and using things.

My values of living frugally and buying ethically-produced clothing that is not damaging to the environment sometimes feel completely at odds with each other. For me, this is where mending, crafting, and buying second-hand come in. Can I mend something to extend its useful life? Can I knit or sew more of our everyday wardrobe basics? Is it something I can trade or buy second-hand rather than purchasing new?

For this mini-collection we sent our Grazioso linen/silk blend lace-weight yarn to three designers from around the world, and they each did a beautiful job transforming their skeins into perfect projects to inspire your summer knitting. And in order to celebrate summertime crafting we're hosting a Grazioso Make-along starting July 1.

Recent Accomplishments - June 12, 2019

by Debbie Sullivan June 12, 2019

It's been quite a while since either Elizabeth or I have had a moment to record our weekly accomplishments here on the blog. I think it's a fun way to share a bit more about ourselves and our projects so I've decided to revisit it this month. I'm not sure we'll try to make it a weekly thing again though, maybe we should change it to "Accomplishments of the Month" instead?
