Ta-dah! A surprise for the holidays…

November 2017

We’ve been hinting about a surprise coming from NQ – and here it is!
A special issue, created as part of the Canada 150 commemorations has gone to print. All subscribers will receive it with their winter magazine, and it will also be available for sale at the upcoming Christmas Craft Fair, and select retail locations. It’s full of all kinds of writing and stories and illustrations – colour us excited 🙂 Also, we can’t help but think it would make a lovely stocking stuffer for all of those hard to buy for folks!

Costume Banks and Conjured Worlds

BY Eva Crocker

As we weave through the racks she tells me the history of specific pieces, like a donated Sherlock Holmes’ style cape and deerstalker hat that was worn during the Boer War. Each costume is a talisman for transformation and picking the right one can help summon a character, conjure a world.
