Last week we put up our first window display in more than year, probably more like two! It feels pretty good. the window features a rainbow motif crafted with three different techniques. Macrame rainbows can be made with a kit supplied to us by Aster and Vine, Needle Felted rainbows and Punch Needle rainbows are Knit Cafe original patterns and also come as kits.
It is pretty tricky to take photos of windows but I love how the reflection in this shots elevates the rainbows skyward.
The Punch Needle Kits come with 4 different rainbow designs from which you can choose the one you like best. You can also just purchase the pattern as a digital download. All the profits made from these downlaods through the month of June 2021 we will be donating to Friends Of Ruby, which is an organization in Toronto that helps LGBTQI2S youth.
Several needle felted rainbows can be made with one kit. These would look awesome made into a mobile. There is video support for this kit for those who are new to needle felting!
This macrame rainbow is easy to make but you will need a glue gun or some strong glue!
Also….. As of June 16, The Knit Cafe will be partially open to shopping! Wow!
Customers can come in, one at a time with masks and we will help them at an area sectioned off at the front of the shop, So, no independent browsing just yet but you will be able to see those colours and textures in person.
Please check out the webshop before you come so you know what to ask for, and please get in touch for pre-visit consultations by email and by phone. We are here Wed-Fri noon-6pm, and Sat-Sun noon-5pm.
