3-Day Stitching Holiday

October 6, 7, 8


3 day

Ask anyone who has attended one of these classes, and they will tell you they learned a lot, had a great time and would attend again!

Drop off your canvas by August 15. Linda will write a stitch guide for it, and we will pull the fibers she suggests before you get to class. You will have the opportunity to change out the fibers selected if they don't work for you.

We provide lunch, snacks, and some fun surprises. And, as with all our classes, students receive a 10% discount on merchandise purchased the day of class.

Call 847-446-4244 SOON to register. This class is filling up fast!  A $100 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your place.

Exciting News

The Canvasback is delighted to announce a new member has joined our family.

After 42 years, our owner, Sally Volkert-Bissell, has sold the shop to Eilene Isaacs! Eilene is an experienced retail executive who lives here in Northfield. She is also a painter and a passionate stitcher. She has lots of exciting ideas to expand The Canvasback's inventories, programs and markets.

Fortunately, Sally will continue to work and teach in the shop as will the other members of The Canvasback team. Sally and Eilene are working hard to make it completely seamless for customers.

This is, indeed, big news for The Canvasback and our customers! We know you'll agree.

Please stop by soon to meet Eilene!
