October, 2013



October is here already, and the pumpkin patches around Victoria are ripe and ready to pick.  This photo was taken at Dan's Market on the Peninsula.

I am sure everyone has started knitting and stitching for the upcoming holidays, and if not, there is still time to start!  With so many beautiful yarns and projects to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect gift for yourself or others.  Having trouble deciding?  Gift certificates are always a great choice.  Call or email us for more information.
