How to get a gobstopper

Gobstoppers are all one-of-a-kind and are only available in limited quantities.  So how do you get your hands on one?

On-line Updates:

I post a batch of fresh new gobstoppers for sale here on my website once a month.  The date and time varies from month to month, so that people in different time zones have a chance to take part.  Updates are announced in advance here on my website and in my Ravelry group.

Mailing list: I send an email reminder through my mailing list, just before each update.  I send 1-2 emails per month and never share your email address with anyone.  To join, simply email me with a request to join my list.  (Please note that under Canadian anti-spam law, I need a record that you wish to receive email from me.)

Fibre Festivals and Shows:

I take part in several fibre festivals in Ontario, including the Peterborough Fibre Arts Festival, the Knitters’ Frolic in Toronto, and the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters’ Fair.


My two favourite local yarn shops carry a small number of gobstoppers: Needles in the Hay, in Peterborough, and Shall We Knit?, in Waterloo, Ontario.
