Artisans host country tour

NANAIMO - Cedar and Yellow Point Artisans open doors for annual Christmas tour.

Artisans in Cedar and Yellow Point are opening their doors to people during the 27th annual Country Christmas Tour.

Margaret Worms, owner of The Dollhouse Gift Shop, started the tour.

In the past it was difficult to get people from Nanaimo to travel to Cedar, said Worms, but that has changed over time and more people every year take the self-guided tour.

Worms plans to retire after this event. People can find handmade Christmas ornaments, stuffed animals and children’s clothing in her shop.

“Just come and enjoy yourself,” said Worms.

The tour, hosted by the Cedar and Yellow Point Artisans’ Association, starts today and runs until Sunday (Nov. 19-22) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
