Rememberance Day

We will be closed until 12:30pm on Monday November 11th. We hope you are able to take some time to pause and remember those who have and continue to serve this fine country. We are grateful for their service.

These are poppies that Carrie has created for her family members after taking a workshop here at Canada Beading from Naomi Smith last fall. The design was changed but the technique is the same that was taught in the class.
