Cottage Craft is a wool shop in the heart of St Andrews, NB (Canada), right on Market Square: "Producing quality Canadian woollen products in St. Andrews by-the-Sea for over ninety years…." They offer handknit sweaters, exclusive tweed apparel, woollen skeins in a wide array of colours and sweater kits. Cottage Craft yarns and hand-woven tweed are 100% wool, made here in the Canadian maritimes.

Georgia's mat, below, was made for our one-year old granddaughter.
