The yarntruck is making its return on Sunday May 22 to our friends at Seed to Sausage in Tichborne, Ontario, near Sharbot Lake.  This year marks the fifth-year anniversary of The Day of the Pig, a full-day festival of fun, food and friends! Enjoy roast pig, top chefs, music, bubbly (and non-bubbly) beverages, an artisan market (including the yarntruck!), demonstrations and more! Come prepared to stay for the day; there’ll be tables and chairs but bring your own chair for best results!
