This booth had lovely fabric. I want to make some of these fabric containers that can be either used folded down or with the sides straight up.
Mes Broderies Ma Passion . There were beautiful patterns, threads, buttons, scissors, and other embroidery items.
Over the three days, I purchased the following items from this booth:
Marie Suarez. Using our Google Translate apps we can easily interpret the instructions.
Block Party. I aspire to own the other 4 charts.
I couldn't resist these adorable FIMO (sculpted plastic clay) ram, ewe, and lambs. They were done in an intricate mille fiori style.
The Black Lamb.
Friday and Saturday nights we dined at Le Café du Bistrot in the town. For a small town, this was a superb eatery. They had an excellent wine selection and many menu items including personal pizzas, pastas, and entreés of fish, beef, chicken, and other kinds of meats. The desserts looked delicious. We made our reservation for Saturday evening as we were leaving the restaurant on Friday.
For breakfasts, we found a great place, again in the north end of town on the Rue Principale, called La Boucheé Double. It's a burger joint with several delicious breakfast selections.
After a last visit to the Twist Festival on Sunday morning, we headed for home. The driving conditions were excellent and the traffic on the 401 as we approached the GTA surprising moved along.
I would definitely attend this festival again. The vendors were varied and the merchandise was mostly of very high quality. They should be very proud to be Canada's biggest fibre festival.
My travel companions were delightful and as happy to be among knitting and stitching people as I was. Thanks, Barb, Poppy, and Jen1 for a very enjoyable girls' getaway weekend.
