Craftworks Society: Guilt-Free Holiday Shopping!

Craftworks felt story

Since 1966, Craftworks Society has provided meaningful work for Vancouver adults who are unable to seek and maintain regular employment due to physical challenges and/or mental illness. The Craftworks Society is a registered Canadian charity that works with disabled adults in BC to create handicrafts for sale.

In preparation for the upcoming holiday season Craftworks Society has launched their first-ever web store, where people can shop for handicrafts from the comfort of their own home. You can also find their products at multiple conventions and craft fairs, including a kiosk in City Square (Cambie & 12th) over the holiday season.

Their felt stories are a must have and they are perfect for creative play. These would make excellent gifts for little ones.  I love that they are super easy and economical to mail, they are flat, light and unbreakable and fit in a small envelope. You can purchase their felt stories online on their website.

    December 9-Thank you for telling us about the Craftworks Society. I had not heard about it. Not onlly are their ‘storybook felts’ colourful , but children just learning to reak could make up their own stories about them,, and the teacher could print the story for the group of children to read.-el03ro
