Knitting in the
Canadian Maritimes

August 23 - September 2, 2024

Come with us to Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, as we explore this portion of the Canadian Maritimes!  We will visit farms and mills highlighting the vibrant fiber production in the region today, from wool to alpaca and even linen!  While in Nova Scotia, let's explore its history, as well as its fiber - from the Mi'kmaq people and the Arcadians, to The Citadel in Halifax and the Maritimes Museum.  Of course, we will have to pay homage to resident literary figure, Anne of Green Gables, while on Prince Edward Island, and we will have plenty of time to walk on its famous red sand beaches and visit local artisan shops.  Rug-hooking is the region's most traditional craft, and we will have the option to try our hand at it in a small project with a woolly twist!  Accommodations will be in grand old inns and characterful cottages, all within view of the ever-present ocean.  This is a workshop-loaded tour, from the magical wooliness of thrumming to learning the sorting of fleece to dying alpaca fiber and all along with the rug hooking project.
