Very special guest Kyo Maclear will be at the shop this Saturday celebrating her new book The Wish Tree along with our friend and celebrated author/illustrator Julie Morstad.
You may recognize Kyo’s work from Spork, The Good Little Book,Virginia Wolf and Julia, Child written by Kyo and illustrated by Julie. Her new book The Wish Tree is a special story about a boy and his sled but also so much more. Beautifully illustrated by Chris Turnham with a soft and playful style that will easily become a winter favourite.
It’s a very snowy winter and Charles wants to find “a wish tree.” Both his brother and sister try to tell him there is no such tree but Charles doesn’t listen. He believes. On his search he comes across different animals, like a friendly squirrel who needs help gathering hazelnuts. He has spent his day helping the animals and just when the day is ending Charles finds the wish tree, gleaming white. He writes his wish on a piece of paper and ties it to the tree.
Come out and make a wish of your very own, and meet Kyo and Julie, which to me is a wish granted in itself.
This Saturday, September 24 th from 12- 2 p.m.
See you there.

I’m so proud of the programming my staff and I are rolling out for this year’s round of Crafternoons. New and exciting projects inspired by some new books and some beloved favorites. Super cool crafts, and incredibly inspired art projects for the 4-9 year old set. We also added a special week for the 6-9 year olds dedicated entirely to Textiles & Sewing. We’ve always been known for offering camps that siblings can attend together, so we thought we’d sweeten the deal with 15% off for any set of siblings attending together.

SESSION ONE July 6-10 SESSION TWO July 13-17 SESSION THREE July 20-24 ** TEXTILES 6-9yrs SESSION FOUR July 27-31 SESSION FIVE August 10-14 SESSION SIX August 17-21
Our camps are for children 4-9. Classes are kept small (8-10 kids) keeping our classes calm and considered. A new air conditioning system at the shop means classes will be COOL and cool too!
