Knitting in the
Canadian Maritimes

Not Yet Scheduled

Come with us to Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia as we explore two of the three Canadian Maritime provinces. On Prince Edward Island, known as The Gentle Island, we will visit alpacas and mills, walk on it's famous red sand beaches, visit local artisan shops, learn the traditional craft of rug hooking and dance at an island ceilidh. In Nova Scotia the fibre reverence continues with a linen mill tour, woolen blankets, sheep and yarn and unabashedly more yarn! On the rather small island of Big Tancook, we will spend a day with Lucy Neatby in a private workshop on double knitting. Accommodation will be in grand old inns and characterful cottages, all within view of the ever present ocean.
