Fall Knitters Tour of Niagara Region

This month we will be off on another adventure. Its our Fall Knitters Tour, a weekend bus excursion through Niagara Region on November 21st and 22nd. We will visit area wool shops, watch a fibre demonstration, tour a Lavender Farm, participate in a hands on workshop with a local knitting instructor, and so much more. Its an overnight trip, including all meals and accommodation. Some of you may have participated in previous tours, and know how much fun it is to be in the company of a wonderful group of knitters. From time to time we all need a little getaway especially with girlfriends, before the Christmas rush and to boost our spirits during this dull time of year.

Last Autumn, we travelled by bus through Pennsylvania for three days, browsed five knitting shops along the way, stopped in at a lovely Alpaca Farm and met the nicest creatures, toured the Amish community and the Quilt and Textile Museum in Lancaster. There was lots of time for outlet shopping and chocolate cravings at Hershey World.

This past Spring, we stayed a little closer to home and toured Grey and Bruce County, stopping in at two farm based wool studios. We learned how to handpaint yarn, and took a class in fairisle knitting using two hands.

There are still some spaces left for our Fall Knitters Tour, if you would like more information please contact:
