Three fibre locations in West Hamilton to visit all in one day! All 20 minutes apart!!
The Hamilton Fibre Forge has been trying to come up with ways for our fibre community to get together, meet vendors, do a bit of networking….while still keeping everyone safe and maintaining social distancing and we think we have figured it out!
On August 23, we held a small micro market on a farm in St Ann’s Ontario with 6 vendors as an experiment and it was a smashing success! We had folks visit us from as far away as Markham, Orangeville and Niagara Falls.
By holding the event outside, keeping the number of vendors small and also asking vendors to keep their set ups small and simple, it allowed folks to maintain their social distance, while still having the opportunity to shop, buy some fibre & yarn, and visit alpacas!
Since that day was such a success, we are planning to expand the idea and do a couple more micro markets before it gets too cold to be outside.
Next up, September 12th 10-4PM in rural West Hamilton!
Three locations with multiple fibre and yarn vendors at each one!
