The Alton Mill is an 1880s stone knitting mill that has been lovingly converted into an arts centre housing 20+ artists & artisans in working studios, 3 galleries, a sculpture garden, café and unique shops. Sitting on the banks of Shaw’s creek, it has spectacular views from all three floors and throughout the grounds.

Visit Rare Threads in person.

Because our pieces are one-of-a-kind, we do not sell online. Instead, we offer an educational and entertaining hands-on shopping experience. The Alton Mill is within an hour's drive of most of the GTHA, K-W and downtown Toronto. Rare Threads is open to the public year-round Wednesdays through Sundays and Holiday Mondays 10-5. See below for the address and directions.
