Allow me to introduce Lil Dorothy. She’s the fire truck I bought from Lanark County. She’s a beaut, don’t you think?
Over the next few months I’m going to do her up and take her out on the road as a mobile yarn store. She can go where ever in Eastern Ontario you wish to invite her, like markets, music festivals, studio tours, art fairs, retreats… .
She will be stocked with:
- Ontario sheep wool
- Ontario alpaca wool
- hand-dyed yarns
- hand-spun one-of-a-kind art yarns
- sock yarns and more
- unique tools and notions
- a well-edited collection of books and patterns
- and a love of fibrecraft
The whole travelling show is called Purlin’ J’s Roving Yarn Co. I hope you’ll join me in my journey as we travel around this summer, bringing beautiful yarns and fibres to hand-crafters throughout Eastern Ontario.
