If you have visited the store lately you might have noticed a nice fresh scent in the air. We have a new locally made candle line called the Vancouver Candle Co. They are “Clean burning candles made of premium soy wax, cotton wicks and perfume-grade fragrance oils.
Hand-poured in small batches and personally signed and numbered by a single artisan”. You can check out their website for more info here:
We love to be able to support our local businesses and adore the fact that they are named after local areas of Vancouver, a great unique gift. The scent combinations are to die for, making it impossible to choose just one.
And to go with these beautiful candles you can practice or learn a new skill of lace or cables with these knitted spa cloths, a perfect birthday, wedding shower or house warming gift.
An excellent introduction to lace and cables, either from a chart or written instructions. Patterns can be purchased individually or as a set of 3 ebook. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spa-cloth-1
This is Spa Cloth 3-http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spa-cloth-3-2
Each cloth calls for 1 skein of Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton and 3.75mm needles. Feel a little over your head? Fear not, the lace aficionado Alison will be offering workshop classes for this project on Saturdays at the Point Grey location. So come and learn a new technique or freshen up on your skills (beyond beginner skills recommended) and leave with a lovely new bathroom addition or gift. Just in time for mother’s day too, a one of a kind candle and Spa cloth…..done!!
