The famous Pictou County Brown Sauce, Sams Pizza is now open in Bedford on Bloom Lane
Tufting shop YOLO Craft is open at 1359 Barrington St.
Tufting is a method of textile creation. In this method, threads of yarn are pushed through the weaves of a foundation fabric to form the yarn piles that make a textile. Tufting can be done completely by hand or mechanically by hand with a tufting gun to make rugs, wall art, pillows, and many other forms of textile art.
“In addition to the workshop, we are also selling some of our own tufting works, crafting material kits (people need to do it by hand instead of tufting gun) and some delicate knickknacks. We will also launch a service to help customers make customized works in the future. People can send their designs/patterns/pictures, and we can use tufting to make it happen”
This week for SaltWire I talked about new knitting and yarn store, Fia Fia opened Saturday
“Hiding just behind the Sobeys on the corner of North and Windsor is Summit Street and there you will find, Fia Fia. It’s a knitting and yarn shop tucked away in north-end Halifax, offering all-natural yarns and tools, with a focus on sustainability and approachability.”
