The flax to linen folks will be at James Bay Market (Victoria, BC) next Saturday the
28th of June from 9 to 3pm. The market is on the grassy area on the
corner of Menzies and Superior between
the back of the Parliament buildings and the James Bay Tea Room. The
flax folk are on the west side near the parking lot.
Come and watch how linen is made or try your hand at processing the
flax into a spinable fibre that can be made into linen thread by using a
drop spindle we have for your use. Hope to see you there
This Saturday 14th of June is our first demo of the year. It's out at
SHAS aka: Heritage Acres. Off the Pat Bay highway East onto Island View
Rd by Michells Farm Market then the first left onto Lochside.
If anyone wants to come and help or learn how flax turns to linen you
are most welcome to come take part. Just watch or we can put you to
work making your own strick of fibre to spin.
We will be in our usual spot on the porch and grass in the front of the
Moody building, across the lane from the food concession.
It's the Fathers Day weekend so there is lots going on at Heritage Acres
- trains, food, machines working all over the place - steam and
otherwise. The Museum is open with a terrific collection of items and a
weaving loft with a display of looms etc.
We are only going to be doing our demo on Saturday.
Hope to see you there
