Wheels on Fire / Les Rouets en Feu (Spin-in)

January 18 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

- $5

Wheels on Fire / Les Rouets en Feu is an annual Spin-in gathering of spinners and felters. This is a day to join with like minded people to share our interest in spinning fiber and spinning wheels.

During the afternoon, we will have an informative and interactive presentation by Cathy Louise Koenjer and Sylvie Faucher all about flax. Cathy Louise is the co-ordinator for the Guild’s Flax Project (2019). She donated the land, time, food and equipment to make certain that the flax we planted came to a successful harvest. She will be discussing the process of raising flax from seed to a finished product. Sylvie is also a flax grower and will also be sharing her experiences growing flax and using linen in weaving. There will be lots of visuals and plenty of time for questions and answers.

The vendors line up for the event for this year is really enticing as well. There are loads of interesting products, fibres, tools and opportunities to experiment. There are still a few vendor spaces remaining, so if you are interested please contact Bernadette Quade (bquade@pixelgraphstudio.com) for more information.
