River Gallery fibre extravaganza

Sande Gunning's River Gallery in Browns Flat (not far from Fredericton and Saint John, New Brunswick... and just a little further from St Andrews) is a wonderful spot for fibre enthusiasts of all stripes, dots and weaves. Rughooking, quilting, appliqué, knitting, felting, ribbon embroidery---pick your passion! Sande carries a full line of supplies, tools, books and patterns; also related ornamental items, just for fun. The warm wooden walls and warmer proprietor welcome you and the vibrant display cheers the spirit. I'm always in awe that Sande remembers all our names and often what we were last working on... the personal touch is much appreciated! It is always good news when Sande brings her goods on the road, to a workshop or exhibit, as we know there will be new 'must-haves'.

On the walls of the studio shop are finished mats and wallhangings, showing the talent and ingenuity of our New Brunswick and Nova Scotia rughookers. If you are new to the craft, you are welcome to sit down at the frame and hook on a rug sampler in progress. Or to try out various hooks until you find the one that feels just right. Sande will happily advise you on a pattern, wools or cotton fabric for your rug or quilt; her practiced eye can make it easier to pick just the right colours, if you're undecided. 100% wools: solids, plaids, hand-dyed, swatches... goodies galore!
