Join us Saturday October 20th for some crafting and community time!!! 

Here's some of what was happening in September:





Also in September, it was the Essex BIA Street Party and Art Space Essex helped some kids stitch their very own Super Hero capes and we had lots of colouring and doodling going on.





Culture Days was in September as well and Art Space Essex and Black Sheep Knits hosted a crafting event at the Royal Oak Long Term Care Residence in Kingsville.  There were quilts & afghans on display, crafting demos and also residence art work on display.

Just a reminder that Saturday Crafters will be starting up again on September 15th!!!!  I hope you are ready for some crafting time with friends, old and new – and if you haven’t joined us before, please do!  We’d love to have you!

I wanted to let you know that there are two new yarn stores in the Windsor area:

The Hook Pusher 628 Monmouth Street, Windsor (off Wyandotte in Walkerville)

I will be at the Essex BIA Street Party on Friday September 21st 4pm-7pm to promote our Saturday Crafters group – the theme is “superhero”, so we will have some crafting demos and maybe some capes to sew patches on, for the little superheros 😊.

SATURDAY CRAFTERS MAY 19TH - 10AM-3PM



I think spring has really sprung this time!!!  And that means the summer is sneaking up on us and May Saturday Crafters will be our last one before summer break :( .  Don't be too sad, this month lunch will be provided by Art Space Essex, so no need to remember to pack a lunch this time, lunch is on us!  We use the extra money we have taken in after paying rent and provide an "end of season" lunch for everyone, so please come out and join us - whether you've come multiple times, just once or have never come at all, we'd love for you to join us!  Please send us an email so we know you are coming, just so we can get a head count.


Check out what was happening at the April Saturday Crafters!  We had a great turnout and lots of creating going on!
