Hello Knitters!

Well, next weekend you can again combine the art of knitting and the great outdoors at Silmaril Farm's Fleece and Fibrefest. There will be plenty of events including a shearing demonstration, animal displays, a spinning event as well as a marketplace to shop for some lovely alpaca or cashmere. The Fleece and Fibrefest is held Sunday, May 27 from 10am to 5pm at Silmaril Farm, 144 Russ Road in Grimsby.
