Spun Yarn 110
The camp brochure for my September 2020 Knitting on the Wild Side Camp on Big Tancook Island, NS is now available!
Have you ever wished to be cast adrift on an island with only your knitting and a few good friends?
Join me on Big Tancook Island, Nova Scotia for a week of knitting, classes, companionship and incredible tranquility.
Expect a warm Tancook welcome and enjoy the rugged beauty of this remote island full of peace and quiet that scarcely can be imagined in our modern world. You'll travel back in time and leave the everyday world behind the moment you step ashore.
Registration for camp will begin at 1:00pm
Atlantic time on January 23rd (NOTE: this is somewhat earlier than
usual in order to accommodate my challenging spring travel schedule).
In the event that the September 12-18 camp completely fills up (as seems very likely again), we will subsequently open dates for the second week (September 19-25). Please email email@example.com for all of the the details.
A very Happy New knitting Year to you all!
