Cape Breton Island
Cape Breton Island Travel Guide
LeFort's hooked portraits of Jackie Kennedy and various Canadian prime ministers are astonishing in their obsessiveness, as is her 80-square-foot depiction of the Resurrection, which required eight miles of yarn and two million stitches, and is shown in a gallery with piped-in Gregorian chants.
A jumbled, items-spilling-off-of-shelves knitting store.
Swoon over the heaps of handmade rugs and socks at the Co-op Artisanale in Cheticamp.
The Black Sheep Gallery was a former fish plant in West Jeddore that now sells folk and outsider art.
The festival glorifies all things Gaelic with traditional dances, workshops (learn to step-dance), and language classes (did you know that am foghar is Gaelic for "autumn"?).
The funky, two-floored shack on the side of the road in Margaree Forks, carries campy stock.
Pop in for the handsome leather buckets and bags.
