Since October of 1986, We started out as a knitting machine shop. In 1990, we grew into a knitting & stitchery shop. Our shop is located in Centre Village Mall in Lethbridge.

Our staff is kept busy, helping customers find and choose from a great selection of yarns, crochet cottons, and stitchery products. New products continually arrive and our customers come back often as not to miss out on new products.

Our staff are professionals at knitting, machine and hand, crocheting, and cross stitching. We have lessons in knitting and crocheting and look forward to offering other classes in the future.

 

CROSS STITCH

Learn the basics - visit out LESSONS page.

 

LESSONS

Our staff will go to great lengths to make sure you understand and are enjoying the class. We even throw in some laughter, some camaraderie, and the time flies by way too fast. We even break out the rooibos tea! - visit out LESSONS page.

 

FRAMING

Framing is the art of making a stitchery piece finished and being able to hang on your wall.

Your piece is as good as your framing. It should always appear to enhance your work and not take over. After all it is your work that needs to be shown off.

 

EVENTS

We are thrilled so many had a great time at the last 2 events and that they were enjoyed by so many. Stay tuned for our upcoming events.

International Back to Back challenge in May 2015.

This is an excellent event and time to watch and to learn about our wool industry and bring awareness to our local Breast Health Program.

Each year, teams around the world enter into the Back to Back Wool Challenge. A team of eight consists of a blade shearer, spinners and knitters who challenge other teams around the world to beat their times. In 2015 different teams in around the world worked the challenge. 2015 is the twenty first Challenge year, completed on or before Sunday 7th June 2015. Here is the top three.

FIRST

Groenewoud team of Netherlands & Germany – 5 hours 1 minute 28 seconds.

SECOND

Knitwits, Tocal Agricultural College, Paterson, NSW. Australia – 6 hours, 22 minutes, 38 seconds.

THIRD

Hitsujikouboh Masako, Chibaken, Japan – 7 hours, 34 minutes, 43 seconds.

Our team, Poly Westers, spun and knit up a storm we did not qualify in the top ten. Cheer us on for 2016. This will be our 16th year!
