I am still waiting for my camera charger to arrive and when it does, I will take photographs and finish putting together my first application for a visual arts residency in Banff. Until then, here’s another little Vancouver discovery. It is amazing what you find out about your city as you are getting ready to leave it.
Spool of Thread is a nifty sewing studio and fabric store located up the block from Collage Collage, which I mentioned the other day. They offer different levels of classes, a lovely selection of fabrics including a fantastic ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’ print, and unique patterns by Colette and Oliver+S. They also have drop in times and tools like dress forms and sewing machines for those who do not have their own. It is a very pleasant and supportive space, which is great for experienced and beginning sewers.
