Plum Project Studio


Our Thursday night knit group decided took a little field trip this week to a new Shop on the Dollarton Highway called Plum Project Studio. The shop caters to a couple crafts – knitting and crochet but also cross-stitch and sewing as well, with a heavy bias towards stocking ethical products – fair trade, organic, small business, plant dyes, hand-printed.

The shop offers classes and the use of its sewing machines and other tools to customers. It’s a small space with a little sampling of a lot of different things, including some really cool ceramic buttons. The owner, Janice, said she wanted to get a feel for what customers want and then she’ll order stock and schedule classes and activities accordingly.

We arrived early and had a chance to wander around the shop before other people began to filter in.

It was a good group of people that showed up and lots of laughs were had by all. It was a nice change of pace from our regular Thursday evenings. I don’t have any pictures, but Steve posted some. You can sort of see the top of my head in the first one. Yay me.
