Shop Update

As you all have heard by now, the governor has eased COVID restrictions for retail stores in Cook County. We can now have 4-5 people at a time in the shop, provided they are spread out and maintain social distancing. This is great news for all of us!


We look forward to seeing you! However, if you are still concerned about coming into the shop, we will be happy to come out to your car for drop-offs and pick-ups. Just call us (847-446-4244) to let us know.


Jean Smith

Now in Bloom

The Canvasback is now a florist shop thanks to Jean Smith! Blossoms of every sort imaginable can be found in this colorful show. 
Jean's designs are beautifully painted, easy to stitch and there is one (or more) that features your favorite flower. She's added lots of new items to her ever-popular collection of garden favorites.
