Elegant Threads, the Qualicum Weavers and Spinners annual show and sale, takes place

Friday November 18 and Saturday November 19.

The event takes place at Qualicum Commons, 744 Primrose Street in downtown Qualicum Beach.

The hours are 10 am to 4 pm on both days.

Admission is free and there is plenty of free parking off Primrose Street.
Here is just a taste of what we have to offer.

You can expect to find a variety of items including one of a kind accesssories such as the shawl woven on a hand painted warp or the blue scarf in textured yarns.

If you have been to the show in the past you know you will know its a visual treat and as well as an opportunity to find some unique high quality gifts for those special people.

Items range from the practical, a hand woven tea towel that will last for years and years, to the whimsical, a felted tea cozy with wooly friends grazing in the flowers.

Many of our members are both spinners and excellent knitters.  You can expect to find plenty of keep-me-warm toques, mitts, cowls and shawls.  If you have a knitter of your own on the gift list you can also check out the selection of hand-spun yarns that you’ll never find in a yarn store.

This year you can also expecct to find an expanded selection of basketry items thanks to our popular basketry workshops.  Everything from a whimsical basket tree (get the pun) to wine baskets (without the bottle of course).

We’ve included a silent auction for those bargain hunters that like a bit of competition.  Plan to be there at the close on Saturday for that key final bid.

We would like to think this is more than the usual craft sale and that you will take some time to enjoy the exhibit, talk to the makers, watch the demos and even take a peak at our studio.
