On pleure pas au bingo
On pleure pas au bingo
It's all here: this is life on the reservation, in high definition. Dawn, the narrator, revisits her family life, looks back on her school years, and resolutely embarks on the path to the future. Somewhere between a learning novel and an autobiographical story, On pleure pas au bingo is a book that celebrates cultural differences and the power of speaking up through the traditional and universal remedy of laughter.
Beyond the stereotypes and clichés about stray dogs, alcoholism and bingo parties, it is the story of a girl who discovers the joy of reading. It's the story of her dreams, her ambitions, and her wicked sense of humor. It's the story of a rebellious, yet sensitive teenager who is able to show us the beauty and love that defines her family.

Anne-Marie and Catherine are the inseparable friends who founded the brand in 2009. Their sustainable and minimalist clothing collections are designed in their Mile End workshop-boutique, then gently manufactured in Montreal from natural fiber textiles.
We have been experimenting and refining our processes for a dozen years to work with the best natural fibers available. We select our materials for their durability, comfort, aesthetic properties and for the conditions in which they were produced. We give priority to suppliers close to our workshop. Many of our jerseys and knits are made in Canada, while some woven fabrics come from the United States. For more specialized materials, we work with Japan and some European countries (mainly Italy and northern countries). It is essential for us to make sure that the workers' conditions are fair, and the best way to be sure is to choose countries that have a charter of individual rights similar to ours!
We ship from our Mile End (Montreal) workshop in an average of 3 to 5 business days. In Canada, delivery is free for orders of 150$ before taxes and more. The shipping rate is fixed for Quebec and Ontario at 10$ and for the rest of Canada, 15$. For local delivery in Montreal, the fee is 7$ for orders under 150$. By entering your shipping address, you will know if the local delivery option is available to you.
Exchanges are accepted within 10 days of receipt of the package. A notice must be sent to email@example.com to obtain return authorization.

If the color or size you are looking for is no longer available, please write to us. We have an inventory of fabric in the shop that allows us to make any of our patterns, whether it is this one or a piece from a past collection. Just write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the pattern you are looking for so we can suggest fabrics and colors! Orders sewn in our workshop are at regular price (if the pattern is on sale, the discount does not apply to a piece sewn to order). Production time may vary from 4 to 6 weeks. Items from past collections sewn to order have a 10% surcharge. We can also make alterations to the pattern, in which case there will be an additional charge depending on the situation which can vary from 10 to 20%.
