Have you been to Bird on a Wire Creations just up the block from Main Street and Broadway? Opened at the end of October, it is a welcome haven for the local handmade community! Not only does it carry handmade creations from artists within a 100 mile radius, Bird on a Wire also runs workshops, a Friday night knitting club, craft / sewing studio rental and locker rental for those people, like myself, that seem to stock pile all kinds of supplies "because, you never know!"
Owner, Karen Unger-Strickland, is a practising artist and crafter who brings over 25 years experience to her new venture. Her vision for the store includes a knitting corner, a long dining room table for people to work on their projects, and a children’s area where kids can draw on the walls without reprimand. Prior to starting up Bird on a Wire Creations, Karen successfully owned and operated a paint-your-own ceramic store in Squamish, BC where she hosted and taught workshops in painting ceramics, painting canvas floor clothes, and creating mosaic picture and mirror frames.
In addition to Roxypop, you can also find goods from past and present Got Craft vendors such as Uncle Phil and Rabbit Rabbit.
