  1. Hi there,
    I love this event, the GANG and the Steven Lewis Foundation.
    I wanted to very politely ask about our local grandmothers who could really use our support.
    Due to the opioid epidemic, a staggering number of grandparents are unexpectedly raising their grandchildren. This commonly happens after a parent has passed away from an overdose.
    It’s happening in our communities, in Edmonton, even in our GANG.
    I’m a believer that charity starts at home. Has any off-shoot funding ever been considered for this group? The media hasn’t coined them a name yet, so I don’t know what to call them.
    Thankyou for all the hard work that is put into hosting the fabric frenzy!
    Yours truly,
    Sheila R

    Would love to see an update on The Gangs plans for the fall, etc on the website. Was wondering if you are going to try to go ahead with the craft sale in the fall, and, if so, where can I leave some donations for the sale and/or whom may I contact?
    Would love to see the Fabric Frenzy go ahead but can wait for spring for that as I keep setting aside donations for it as well.

  3. Hi and sorry for this late reply. We are not going ahead with the Shakers and Makers Market this fall, but we have been working on a new and exciting project – it will be announced officially in the next week or so, please stay tuned.
    If you would like to donate items for the sale, I will send the contact info for our Market coordinators in a separate email.
    Watch this space for updated information about the Fabric Frenzy for 2021!

  6. I am a grandmothers’ group leader in NB and I am looking for information on “TEA for TWO”
    If you could send me in the right direction I would really appreciate hearing more about this. I think this could work in our area in these crazy times. Looking forward to your response

    1. Hi, sorry but we don’t have a “Tea for Two” project. Could you check with the Foundation, it likely is part of another Grandmother group.

  7. I have some fabric that I would like to donate to your fabric sale and I am wondering if you are collecting fabric at this time. Thank you.

    1. Thank you for your enquiry.
      We do not have dates for sales as yet but we plan to have some outdoor pop up ones when the weather improves in Spring.
      The best thing to do is occasionally check our website-Info about sales will be posted on the calendar.

  8. Which of your events are the sales of the knitted and crocheted scarves, mitts, hats, slippers, toys and quilted goods?

  9. hi my name is sheila pugh, my sister sent me a copy of the fabric and yarn sale on may 22. I would like to get more information about this please. I am eagerly awaiting your reply

  10. I used to make denim jackets but do so no longer. I have several which are partially sewn, several whole pieces of denim as well as zippers. I was wondering if this would be something that would sell at your fabric sale. I hate to just throw it in the garbage as it is good fabric. Thank you.

  11. I have several pieces of fabric and some notions to donate for the fall frenzy 2023.
    Can you tell me how I would do that please?

  12. I know itโ€™s still a couple months away, but I was hoping to find out how I could volunteer for the Christmas Shoppe in November. Is there a mailing list I can be added to when there is more info available?

      1. I thoroughly enjoyed Christmas ๐ŸŽ„ shopping at the craft sale at Steinhauer United Church in Edmonton, Alberta. Please keep me posted for any upcoming craft sales.
        Thank you

  13. Too cold and slippery to deliver my fabric donations today. Sorry.
    Is there an alternate time that I can give fabric donations?
