SEPTEMBER 3 – John was off in Quebec a couple of weeks ago, vending at the Twist Fibre Festival. It was a busy event with spinners, felters, knitters and other crafters from all over Quebec and Eastern Ontario, mainly. Consider attending next year, not only for the market area but to take some of the many classes they offer.

Be sure to mark your calendars for the WOODSTOCK FLEECE FESTIVAL, this year on October 18 at the Woodstock (Ontario) Fair Grounds. This is the biggest fibre event in Ontario and truly a must-go for felters, spinners and knitters. We take a lot of variety of products to Woodstock, but if you want anything in particular please let us know over the next few weeks.
