Check out what the kids at Carleton Heights Public School made for Remembrance Day! Incredible work!
We’ve just added some great new classes for kids! We’ve still got a few spaces left in our Needle Felting 3D 101 class on February 15th. Join us to make Valentine Cards on February 9th, Easter Eggs on April 13th, and a gorgeous Mother’s Day Planter on May 4th! For more information, or to register, click here!
Feeling the winter blues? Cold weather got you down? Come visit us. I promise we’ll make you happy. How? Our new yarns are super delish. We have: King Cole Bamboo Cotton DK weight, WYS Airie Valley Aran and Berrocco’s Ultra Alpaca worsted. Now nothing says fun like alpaca. Oh just imagine being wrapped in a lovely cardigan made of that. We also have a wide range of new books such as: “Knit To Flatter,” “60 Quick Baby Knits” and “50 Yards of Fun.” But that’s not all! Check out our brand new classes. They’ll get you out of the houses and meeting people. http://wabi-sabi.ca/courses/
Whoops! We made a few errors in the Heather’s Hat Pattern, but we’re ready to correct them! If you’ve bought the pattern in store and have been scratching your head ever since, fear not! The corrections are as follows: Cast on 56 instead of 58 stitches. In the increase round repeat, knit 7 stitches instead of 9. Your total stitches at the end of the increase round will be 63. Happy knitting!
It’s show-and-tell at Wabi Sabi.
Jennifer gets a wooly gold star for being a long-distance customer.
Jennifer is a Wabi Sabi customer from Winnipeg, she came in to pick-up some Mia Mia yarn to make Fair Isle mitts.
Aren’t these just amazing? Sure to keep hands warm from those blustery Winnipeg winters!
Thank you for sharing Jennifer!

From the safe of Wabi Sabi, we wish you safe journey and happy creating.
Warm, comforting and soul filling. Spinning is meditative process where you find zen and become one with the yarn. So, how do you add to that experience? Colour. Supporting a fibre artist’s passions, Katrina from Malenka Originals has painted one of our Louet spining wheels a delicious and satisfying chalk paint red.
Wabi Sabi carries unfinished Louet wheels, ready to be personalized to suit your décor. Malenka Originals has the paint. Together they can spin your fibre dreams into a thing of beauty.
For fibre enthusiasts, fibre (yarn, roving and the like) is like potato chips … you just can’t get enough.
To those of you who love us, we appreciate the willingness to support our craftier side, like giving up your side of the closet for the ever creeping collections which seem to slowly take over like lava.
To fibre enthsiasts, the the objects of their fibre affections are like pets. We may hug it, and squeeze it, and pet it, and in some very rare cases we might even name it (maybe George).
For non-fibre enthsiasts, we at Wabi Sabi see your eyes glaze over. Sometimes we see you coming in short of breath. Hands trembling. And not for the shear excitement of making your way into the shrine to all things wooly, soft and warm, but because you are there to complete a mission. A mission that seems impossible. A mission to secure a gift for your fibre-loving person.
Come to The Wab, where, like a beautiful pair of thrumbed mittens, you will be enveloped in all that is good. We will guide you through your options, from kits to introduce or expand skills (needle felting, drop-spindle, wet felting), to new yarns, to equipment, to our lovely table of ready-made products suitable for many fibrests and non-fibrests alike to enjoy. And should you be suitably whelmed by the experience, we do have our Wish List box …
