A Delightful Announcement: Shabby Motley Opening Soon!

It is with great joy that I announce the Fall opening of my shop, Shabby Motley - a yarn shop, a café, and a dedicate space for showcasing an array of regionally produced goods, including handcrafts, textiles, art, and edibles.

Visit the shop, enjoy a coffee with Tuula's famous Scandinavian baking, and work on your projects.

If you wish to learn a new accomplishment, classes and workshops will be held throughout the Fall and Winter, in knitting, crocheting, spinning, dyeing, crafting, etc.

The online store will launch along with the storefront at

Shabby Motley will be open October 1st, barring disasters or unforeseeable mishaps, at 356 Queen Street East (formerly Frank's Food and former to that, Taste of Scandia), across the street from Fabric Land, directly next door to Algoma Bicycle Co.

If you wish to sell your products at Shabby Motley, please contact for details.


  1. Hi Ashleigh, someone just sent me an invitation to "Like" your Facebook page and here I find you are a neighbour, LOL I know exactly where you are going to be and will make a point of dropping in often. I also have a blog and you are welcome to check it out also. I'm also on Facebook and have a group called "Church Street Boutique", which is where I have a small Boutique (with others) on Saturdays. Very nice to "meet" you. Hugs, Chris
