Located in a historic heritage home (1856) in Perth-Andover, NB, the gallery has been home to many artists, most notably Violet Gillet.
Vi was an author, painter, ceramics & fibre artist, and also etched glass and many other artistic pursuits.
The gallery is named for one of her books, Where Wildflowers Grow.
The gallery is a destination for fibre artists to gather their supplies, tools and inspiration.
Our inventory includes many natural yarns and fibres, such as hemp, organic cotton, linen, wool, alpaca, silk, and more.
We also have weaving, spinning, and tatting supplies, as well as items made by local artisans.
Symone graciously granted us an interview and the chance to showcase some of the work that she’s created with fibres from the Gallery. We’ve published that interview here for your enjoyment.
Hi Symone! Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m a Trinidadian native who’s been living in New Brunswick, Canada for 6 years. While knitting, and everything knit related, was initially just a hobby that I picked up to pass the time (I’d always been curious about the craft), it soon became so much more to me than just a fun pastime and wove itself into my life in a way I never expected.
