Haute Handbags

It is with great pride that the Grove is selling the most recent issue of Haute Handbags because Val Hebert's incredible needle felted handbags made out of recycled wool are featured in it! When we opened the doors to the Grove in 2003, Val was the very first customer I taught to knit. She has become a friend over the years and I have watched her growth as an artist with amazement. Her sense of color and design is extraordinary, her workmanship...well, I don't think it can be duplicated, and her artistry...she has got it all going on!
So come on in to the Grove and support Val and other local artisans (the bags on the cover are done by a woman in Coronado)! Buy the Mag! Also, check out more of Val's art on her newly-designed website at!

  2. Thank you so much for that!

    How lucky was I you were my first successful knitting teacher. I tried to learn from my mom and my sis, no luck. Your patience and sweet caring nature are what sets you above all the rest.

    I'm looking forward to tonight! See you at the Walkabout.
