Wool and fibre related happenings
Free event
FIBRE-ADDICTS SOCIAL

This social event was created to bring fibre-loving folk together for an afternoon of mingling, crafting, and discovering local wools and yarns. It’s our goal to make the Fibre-Addicts Social a regular monthly event. Each month we’ll invite a farm to showcase their fleeces, rovings, and yarns. We believe that when creative people are brought together great ideas are born, collaborations started, and inspirations turn into reality.

Details: 
When:      Last Sunday of every month. 1pm-5pm.
                 In 2017: June 25,  July 30, August 27, September 24, October 29, November 26
Where:    Paint Cabin – 723 Gerrard St. E. Toronto, ON
Info:         Coffee/tea + desserts and wine bar available for purchase
Bring:       Your project, spinning wheel, spindle, knitting, crocheting, etc
