Day Trip to the Knitters Frolic!

11 Mar


Knitters and fibre-lovers! Saturday, April 25 is the day we Frolic in Toronto! Board the bus in Kingston or Belleville (you can knit while someone else drives!), arrive at the Japanese Cultural Centre for the 18th Annual Knitters Frolic, and for a $6 admission fee, shop from over 50 vendors, take an afternoon workshop (separate registration required), have a break at the Frolic cafe, and then snooze on the bus back to Belleville/Kingston! Your ticket includes:

  • A return one-day journey from Kingston/Belleville to the Japanese Cultural Centre in Toronto in a chartered coach with a washroom on-board, and luggage space for all your purchases (If only we could all fit in Lil Dorothy!)
  • Ample time to shop over 50 yarn and fibrecraft vendors under one roof, such as FleeceArtist and The Purple Purl.
  • An opportunity to enroll in several Saturday afternoon workshops, such as Slipped Stitch Colourwork led by Kate Atherley or River Rock Scarf led by Sivia Harding (separate registration required).
  • Time to take a break at the Frolic Cafe for a snack.
  • A goodie bag for every passenger!
  • Prizes!

The ticket price per person is $72 + HST (plus $6 admission payable at the door, cash only).
