Upsizing the sewing space

The Sewing Basket Quilts and Crafts will be packing up and heading to a new location this September.

The Sewing Basket Quilts and Crafts will be packing up and heading to a new location this September.

The store, which offers fabric, books, patterns and yarns, will be taking over the former Honda dealership building at 760 Trans-Canada Highway NE.

Owner Carol Van Ommen says there are many reasons why the company has decided to move locations.

“There’s better parking, space and air-conditioning,” she said.

The new space will give the Sewing Basket an additional 1,000 square feet of space, and Van Ommen says there won’t be any problem putting the space to use as the business is going to expand.

“When we move, we are going to expand into paper crafts,” she said.
