It’s quite the thing when the craft world buzzes, what with the snikt of sharpened scissors, the swish of pulled ribbons, the clink of cookie cutters and a symphony of glue guns, paintbrushes and dreams.
The buzz reached a crescendo last month when the Michael’s chain opened in seven Quebec locations, including in LaSalle.

The U.S. chain, which will compete with Quebec-based Omer deSerres, stocks yarn and cupcake delights, jewelry-making supplies, polymer clay and everything in between.
Michaels offers an array of classes and workshops. During a recent visit to the LaSalle location, browsers watched as Beverly Dubuc (above) delicately painted a row of shadowed trees on canvas. She will offer workshops in the coming months.
