Join the Atlantic Spinners and Handweaver’s Guild in our yearly field trip where we will be visiting Dover Farm in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia. Farmers Veronica and John will tell us about their journey in bringing rarer sheep breeds to Canada, and we will get to visit with their Valais Blacknose, Wensleydale and Gotland sheep. Time will be available to visit their farm shop and fibre emporium where they sell their fleeces, yarn, wool locks, and specialty fibres.

Afterwards we will be meeting at Big Al's in Tatamagouche for a group lunch, and then move on to Sisterhood Fibres for a demo on how to spin Angora (bunny) fibre, as well as some tea and treats.

10:30am - Meet at Dover Farm (8452 Hwy #311).
12:00 pm -  Lunch at Big Al's in Tatamagouche (9 Station Rd. Tatamagouche)
1:30pm - Meet at Sisterhood Fibres (567 Sandpoint Rd, Tatamagouche)

Registrants are encouraged to car pool. You can fill out your interest/ need with regards to carpooling in the registration form for this event. Lorna Ash is connecting those willing to carpool and those looking for a ride.

Please note that GPS and Google Maps sends people to the Loop of #311, and this is an incorrect location. The Farm is on the actual #311, on the way into Tatamagouche.
