Yard & Yardage, bigger than ever!

The annual Yard and Garage event in Perry's Siding is back.

The annual Yard & Yardage event will be held on Sunday, April 17 from 10 a.m. 2 p.m. at the Slocan Valley Threads Guild in Perry’s Siding, five minutes north of Winlaw, just off Hwy 6. This is a once-a-year opportunity to celebrate spring with neighbours and others who share a passion for community and fibre arts. It’s also an amazing example of recycling. This year we have had more fabric donations than ever!

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 answers to 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 such as bolts, fat quarters and lengths of specialty cloth. This year there will be a tent with large items for sale: sewing machines, a knitting machine, quilt frames and other equipment. Members’ work will be on display to inspire you, and many of the 113 current members will be on hand to visit. For $10 you can join the guild, or renew your membership, good to June 2017.

Admission to Yard & Yardage is free. No dogs please. Proceeds support the Threads Guild. Donations of fabric, notions and plants are being accepted now, before the event. Call Sharon at 250-226-7703, Lynnda at 250-355-2267, Jasmine at 250-352-7152 or Burgin 250-358-2241 to arrange pick-up or drop-off. See you there!
