Welcome to The Wagon Shed
Nestled on a picturesque farm in the countryside of ARVA, ONTARIO
(only two kilometers from the City of London), The Wagon Shed transports you to the world of years past. You will find for sale, beautiful hand made quilts and table runners, everything hand woven from afghans to totes, hand crafted baskets and hand knitted children's clothing.
|A love of fine art and a passion for bygone eras inspired Katharine (Kassy) Wells to create The Wagon Shed in 1994.
Katharine's vision was to create a warm, friendly environment where everyone could experience the hands-on arts of QUILTING, SPINNING, WEAVING, BASKETRY and RUG HOOKING. She has certainly captured this environment at The Wagon Shed. Katharine or "Kassy" you will quickly learn, is enthusiastic to share her talents. She invites you to learn how to spin, weave, quilt or try your hand at basket making.
|The Wagon Shed also carries a full line of yarns, rovings and hand spun yarns, spinning wheels, looms and accessories.
A collection of whimsical HAND KNITTED BEARS greet you with their sunny smiles and unique designer sweaters. These bears are lovingly created by Kassy's mom, Marion. (It's certainly easy to see where Kassy gets her talent!)
|Each bear has its own personality that complements the hand knitted children's wear, also created by Marion, in sizes from newborn to six years of age.
|A variety of handcrafted items are available in the retail shop, including QUILTS, CLOTHING KNITWEAR, HANDSPUN YARN, and HANDWOVEN ITEMS, as well as HANDMADE BASKETS and FURNITURE created by local artisans. Supplies are also available for SPINNERS and WEAVERS as well as classes in basket-making, quilting, spinning and weaving.
|Bring in your decorating samples and let Katharine create a one of a kind custom afghan just for you.
