It’s holiday season and many of our local Soak retailers are promoting handmade holidays, local shopping events and a focus on shopping at small businesses. We’re super excited to be part of this great holiday theme. We’re local, we’re a small business and our products and philosophies promote both handmade gifts and those made with love.
One of our favourite local events is City of Craft. It’s this weekend! We were able to get a limited edition copy of the 2013 poster, which we’ll hang with pride at the office. It’s so lovely.
If you’re in Toronto, we invite you to visit the workroom at City of Craft. They’re stocked with Soakboxes, Soak, Flatter and gifts galore. If you can’t make it this weekend, you can also find Soak products at Kid Icarus (printers of the aforementioned 2013 hand-printed poster) and event sponsor, as well as the workroom itself, on Queen West. Another sponsor, the Ontario Crafts Council has Soak at their holiday pop-up shop gallery through the 24th.
If you’re farther away, visit any of our fine retailers this holiday season. Thank them for having a great business in your community. Happy holidays!
Congratulations to The Workroom in Toronto who celebrated their birthday on the weekend.
For those of you who haven’t heard of The Workroom, it’s a great place to sew, knit, quilt, and make new friends.
Karen, the owner, had a little party to celebrate full of great food and fun prizes. We included a fun raffle prize that included a Carrie basin, some fun yarn (thanks to Louet for the contribution), a bottle of Unleash, a travel pack, and some great knitting books. If you didn’t win the Soak prize but still want to get your hands on a Carrie basin, you can purchase one from our online store.
Thanks Jean for taking these great photos!
