Sunday, March 10th
10:00 am – 6:00 pm
Come and meet Candace Wilson, the ceramic artist behind One of a Kind Buttons, at a one-day Pop-up Shop on Sunday. Candace will have a selection of ceramic buttons, pins, and shawl pins, as well as her popular garden birds and bird ornaments.
We are so pleased Candace created a Limited Edition Shawl Pin for our Shop’s Featured Knit Pattern, allowing us to “Put a Bird on it”! With the Yarn Crawl’s 2019 theme of “A Walk in the Park” as inspiration, we created a knit design called “Birding the Tualatin River Refuge”. We wanted a bird shawl pin to support this pattern and knew Candace would create something special! Each of these Knit Pattern Kits will include the yarn and pattern, as well as one of these cute Bird Shawl Pins. Yowza!
Candace draws all her designs by hand, then creates the stamps to produce these fabulous ceramic items – which are truly one of a kind. They make great gifts for your fiber-obsessed friends, as well as wonderful mementos of this year’s crawl!
Favour Valley Woodworking is a small independent business in New Hampshire creating unique hand-made wood and antler buttons, toggles, shawl pins & accessories. Owner Martha Sunderland is a talented Woodworker who is also dedicated to preserving and celebrating her natural environment.
Martha is inspired by the traditional New England woodworking craft and the beautiful wood available in her Favour Valley. Her goal is to provide beautiful accessories that complement all types of handwork, while at the same time protecting her environment by using sustainable materials, finishes and technologies. No animals or trees were harmed in creating her beautiful buttons, toggles and pins. They are gleaned from natural antler shedding and tree fall.
The Favour Valley Scarf Buckle was recently featured in Vogue Knitting. And her Antler Buttons are currently showcased in the Winter issues of both Interweave Knits and Knitscene. Here at Northwest Wools, we have carried all of Martha’s beautiful hand-crafted buttons, toggles and shawl pins for several years and love the distinct look they give our fiber art projects!
