Where are the mittens???
You can find some of the coolest mittens in town at a coffee shop or art gallery near you until the snow melts!
Square One at 15 Fariway Drive in Aspen Gardens is a great spot to connect with friends, do a little work or pick up some locally handcrafted items.
OR head on down to Tix on the Square in the heart of Edmonton (9930-102 Ave, Churchill Square) where you will find our mittens just hanging around.
OR over to the Art Gallery of St. Albert. Give yourself time to peruse the gallery and the gift shop, it's a gem.
OR the Carrot Community Arts Coffeehouse which is a fun little place to meet, work, laugh, and create, and features live music and open mic Saturdays. (9351-118 Avenue, NW)
OR stop the car! (or the bus!) at the Tiny Shop Upstairs! Right here in the French Quarter! 30 artisans nestled in this cute little shop....upstairs! (#202, 8815-92 Street)
December 9, 16 & 17 has us moving into the Air Hangar for the Edmonton Christmas Market at Fort Edmonton. Fridays, from 3 - 9pm, and Saturday from noon to 9pm.
jj wool company
In late November 2013, we began sewing mittens from recycled wool sweaters as a fund raiser for a once in a lifetime charity bike ride the following year. We reached our goal and then rode 1800 kms home from Haida Gwaii, BC with a custom carved totem pole, which you can now see at the Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton. The demand for these mittens and the amount of fun we had creating these little works of art moved us, literally, and after much deliberation, we created the jj wool company!
But we haven’t just stood still… we continue to ride our bikes everywhere and are constantly inspired by the variety of gorgeous wool garments we've found. We've created a whole bunch of new clothing and accessories... from our ‘get your ass outside’ sweater skirts to the smallest of Dumpling pouches.
We offer free local delivery, sometimes by bike, in the Edmonton area. Curbside pick-up is also available at 9516-86 avenue.
$10 flat rate shipping to the rest of Canada and $12 flat rate to the USA.
