Yard and Yardage returns to Slocan Valley

Yard & Yardage, the annual spring event at the Slocan Valley Threads Guild is on Sunday, April 30.

Yard & Yardage, the annual spring event at the Slocan Valley Threads Guild is on Sunday, April 30 from 10 a.m. 2 p.m.

This is a once-a-year opportunity to celebrate spring with those who share a passion for community and fibre arts. It’s also an amazing example of recycling.

Would your garden benefit from a new perennial or two? Is your fabric stash depleted after the winter?

During this event, the yard at the Threads Guild becomes a garden centre. You will find plants at reasonable prices, as well as friendly people to answer your gardening questions.

Inside, you can expect nourishment and treats from soups to sweets.

In the heart of the hall are bargains on more fabric than ever, yarn, ribbon, buttons, patterns, craft magazines and boutique items.

There may be equipment for sale, and members’ work will be on display to inspire and entertain you.

Many of the 127 current members will be on hand to visit with you.

Y&Y is an incredible combination of fibre, food, community sharing and growing things.

For $10 you can join the Guild, or renew your membership, good to June 2018.

The Threads Guild hall is located in Perry’s Siding, five minutes north of Winlaw, just off Hwy 6. Admission to Yard and Yardage is free. No dogs please.

Proceeds support the Threads Guild. Call 226-7312 for information. See you there.
