Valley Journal Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

A Fi­bre Frolic spin in and cel­e­bra­tion is planned for June 24 at the Gaspereau Val­ley Fi­bres shop.

Af­ter 15 years of teams com­pet­ing in the Back to Back Chal­lenge, this year a spin­ning and knit­ting day is planned be­tween 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Mar­i­lyn Rand, of Pereau, says a num­ber of PEI knit­ters are com­ing. Demon­stra­tions will run from 10 a.m. to noon, and from 1-3 p.m. They will in­clude: skirt­ing a raw fleece, hand card­ing, wool comb­ing, spin­ning and felt­ing.

A do­na­tion to the an­nual char­ity, the Carey Me Fund, is planned through an auc­tion and freewill of­fer­ing.

For the first time, Rand says, “those of us who are spin­ning and knit­ting will have time to speak to and en­gage the pub­lic and share our fi­bre pas­sions.”

Later in the day a tour of the linen pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity at Tap Root Fi­bre Lab is sched­uled.

The mill is lo­cated on the Med­ford Road near Kingsport.
