Knitters Group Full!!!

It is with regret and a bit of amazement that I have to restrict the numbers in our knitting group. For about three years now we have been getting together and helping one another with knitting projects and over those three years we have picked up a person here and there and our numbers are around 20 plus people at this time. I regret that we can't add any more knitters to that number at this time. I understand that people come and go and if our numbers decrease we will open it up again but at this time they are growing not diminishing. If I can free up another day for knitting I will but at this time that isn't possible either.
THank you for your understanding in this matter.

This week has seen the arrival of yarns, fabrics and the newest waterproof fabrics from the BAbyville Line. Check out the link for Babyville at These waterproof fabrics are the newest thing for plastic pants to ponchos to lunch bags to change table covers. They are in the latest colours and patterns and I have brought in quite a selection as well as the snaps, appliques, adjustable tapes and fold over elastics. Drop in and see them.
There were six new colours of Frillseeker that arrived this week and it's going fast as usual. Get in early and take advantage of the selection. It's flying off the shelf.

There is also several new quilting fabrics that have arrived from Michael Miller and Laurel Burch as well as several new oriental fabrics and panels.
Hope to see you there.

It's a sad day

It's a sad day here at Andjareenas Place as I inform all of you about Mary Gardiner's passing. Mary had been waiting for a knee replacement and frequented the store for all the knitting, hooking and stitching groups in order to pass the time as her surgery date came nearer. We had lots of laughs and lots of Newfie jokes. Mary could tell one because she was one. We laughed with her and were supportive of her when her brother passed away suddenly. The knitters met today and were stunned at the news as it was quite a shock to all of us. We will miss her greatly.
I picture Mary knitting in heaven with a big grin on her face a sewing machine not to far away and a beautiful piece of embroidery on display.

New arrivals

Our Frill Seeker is on its way and expected today according to the tracking email I received from Canpar yesterday. New arrivals of Rizos came yesterday as well as the beautiful rosewood sets of interchangeable circular needles. If you are looking for a gift these beautiful knitting needles come in a velvet lined box and are absolutely beauitful. The Knitters Pride sock needle sets have also been very well received and although I haven't knit with them yet the knitters are absolutely in love with them. I also received some straight sets yesterday as well. So, if you are looking for something for the knitter in your life look no further!
I debated about bringing in the Babyville Pul fabrics into the shop but I have jumped in with both feet. Check it out on the web. I have ordered a full selection of the Babyville fabrics including the snaps, elastics etc. I will let you know as soon as it's in. Great for bibs, change table covers, diaper covers etc. CAn't wait!
