Join us for World Wide Knit in Public Day!
Next Saturday, June 9th, is World Wide Knit in Public Day and were hosting a get together here at Trail Bay Centre! Fibre artists of all sorts, not just knitters, are invited to come, share some laughs and create with us from 12-4pm, and Emily McPherson has generously offered her time to teach any willing beginners how to knit. (Thanks Emily!!)
We’ll be inside the mall this year (historically the weather NEVER co-operates when we planned it for outside) so we’ll have tables, chairs and a few snacks available in the hall outside of Sew Easy. Everyone who comes down to participate can enter a draw to win a $25 gift card for Sew Easy!
So we hope you’ll join us on June 9th to spread the joys of knitting!

Did you know we carried a swim knit fabric? We do! The Enso swim knit is a nylon jersey fabric with 25% four way stretch, perfect for creating activewear, shapewear lingerie, leotards and swimwear that, because of the nylon content, won’t lose it’s shape in chlorinated water. It has a beautiful silky hand that makes it very suitable for next to the skin wear. We’re currently stocking four solid colours, black, red and white pictured above, as well as a navy blue. (60″ wide, 80% nylon 20% spandex, $18/mt)
We’re also stocking sew in Dritz Soft Molded Bra Cups for use in your swim wear or formal wear! They come in three sizes A/B, B/C and C/D, and they are made from hypo allergenic polyfoam.
