We plan on being open 10-5 from Friday-Sunday each week, but are also happy to meet you via chance or appointment. I will also be onsite on both Wednesdays of the show working on some new designs. If the open sign is up, we're there! Saturday, September 28 we will be open until 10pm as all of Elora celebrates their late night shopping event.

These two weekends also coincide with the Elora/Fergus Studio Tour, a grand event celebrating the diverse artistic talent in the area. Make a day of it and enjoy all that Elora has to offer, from fine dining to casual, cozy spots. And, never miss the opportunity to take in the grandeur of the Elora Gorge.

My Canada - Artists' Network Group Show

Art Square Gallery, Dundas St. (across from AGO), Toronto

My handmade felt submission is called "Stops on the Journey to Canada" - an impressionistic landscape coast to coast of symbolic stops by rail and road.  The story line is taken from an old 1940s Canadian Pacific railway map my grandmother used on her journey here from England.  Each stop in the piece contains a transparency of part of the map tucked into the resist holes.
