January 2018

Happy New Year Everyone!

We are looking forward to 2018 here at Periwinkle.  We have lots coming up this month. 
Currently we have our UFO Challenge in progress.  It was a lot of fun to see everyone's finished projects last year so we thought we'd do it again!  It runs January 8 to February 14th!
There are two chances to win.  First bring in your finished project(s) with a photo of their "before" state for an entry to win a $50 gift certificate.  The second way to win is to purchase your finishing fabrics at the shop (backing, batting, binding etc) and get your purchase price for that purchase back in the form of a Periwinkle gift certificate.  The more you buy the more you win!

In addition to an already great line up of classes - you can check them out at or pick up a class brochure at the shop - we've added a couple more new and exciting ones:

Pattern Fitting with Taran Meyer:
The class consists of two 3-hours classes, Saturday, February 3, 1:30-4:30pm and Saturday, February 10, 9:30am-12:30pm.  We will be working with a pattern of your choice.  It could be a new one or one that you've tried already and want to fix a know issue.  Limit 6 students. Cost is $55.00

The next new classes are actually mini-workshops with guest artist Lynne Underwood from Kamloops, BC ( You can check out her website at  Lynne will be doing 2 workshops based on the art of Gloria Loughman.
The first workshop runs three mornings: Monday, 9:30am-12:30pm, February 12, 19 and 26.  The cost of the workshop for all three mornings is $150.00. Limit 8 students

The second mini-workshop with Lynne Underwood is a similar technique but a little more involved with added techniques like fabric painting.  Birch Trees is 4 evenings, Thursday, 6:00-9:00pm, February 1, 8, 15 and 22nd.  The cost for this workshop is $175.00. Limit 8 students.  Gloria Loughman's book Radiant Landscapes is required. (we'll have copies at the shop)
Registration for all these classes can be done at the shop in person or by phone with a credit card (306) 933-3072.

To add to the merriment we will have our annual Tropical Staycation party on Saturday January 27th.  For those of us who can't escape to hot and sunny destinations, we'll create our own warmth with lots of items on sale and refreshments and draws.  We hope you can join us!
