St. Jacobs Market Burns Down
I've always loved going to St. Jacobs to the Farmers' Market, ever since I moved to Canada. It feels like home, a touch of the real and familiar. Recently the main building at the Market burned down, and about 60 people lost their inventory and took a blow to their livelihoods, and not all had insurance. As a goodwill gesture of support, I think it would be cool if we collected fabric, quilt batting, yarn, etc. and donated it to those who lost their handmade items. Even if they don't need it, it would be a way of showing we care. What do you say?
