Thank you for help us celebrate our 9th Anniversary!...


What a heart warming day it was! Thanks to all of you who came out to celebrate and join us for our Purple Sale and those delectable purple icing'd mini cakes!

Speaking of great... we raised $235 plus a trunk full of food for The Toronto Daily Bread Food Bank!  Thank you all so m

uch for participating!

And a big Congrats to all the raffle winners! Our suppliers went all out this year with donation of some truly wonderful prizes, yarn kits, and books!




ooops, we are doing it again...

One Day only!

Sunday, December 18th
10am - 5pm

We are clearing out the comfy chairs for the day
to make way for yummy sales! 

Our regular line-up of in-stock Yarns, Books, Needles & Accessories will be

A Festive 20% off

Just in time to pick up last minute gifts for your favourite stitcher (and yes... you count!)


Please note that while you will not be able to redeem your Purly Points on the sale day, you will be able to rack them up! Sale prices will not apply to items you have on hold, or special orders.

We do not process exchanges on sale days. And the ball winder and swift will not be available for winding due to the general happy chaos... Thanks for understanding!

Speaking of the holidays...

If you would like to make it easy for those who have you on their list... come in and fill out a

Purple Purl Wishlist!

We will keep the index card handy in the shop, and your friends and family can come in and see what it is you truly desire in your stocking!  We will even make sure you rack up the Purly Points!  You simply have to let them know to ask for your wishlist! Simple!

Now, here is the rub: there is no peeking at your registry card again until after the holidays. If you want to add items you will need to fill out another card; we will make sure it is properly attached... wink, wink  (we don't want to get in trouble for your snooping!)


    To get in a festive mood...

    Cost - $55*** A kit with all the materials needed is included in the class fee.

    Please bring or buy: a pair of small sharp scissors

    This is NOT a beginner class.  You must be confident with chain, single, and double crochet stitches.
