Textile Treasures Dec. 8

Did you know that our upcoming Textile Treasures sale coincides with Frolic 2, the 401 Richmond St. W. annual holiday open house celebrating the art, culture and community that makes this Toronto architectural landmark so unique?

Frolic 2 takes place Dec. 6-9, 2012 and features Artists Open Studio, Artisans Marketplace, Gallery Holiday Sales, and Shops. Visitors will be able to meet artists in their studio environments and purchase original pieces of art. Find out more at the 401 Richmond St. W. website.

The Textile Treasures sale takes place on Dec. 8 at 401 Richmond St. W. and will offer a number of unique items, including handcrafted textile gifts sold under the Made By a Volunteer label, upholstery ends and fabric for sewing and home décor. Special to this sale from generous donors:

Small Kilims from Moldova donated by Max Allen.
We have five pieces, wool, early 20th century, priced between $140 and $200. All are floral designs in warm colours.
