    Your picture of the cotton caught my eye. Have you found a place in Canada growing the organic cotton? I’ve been looking on line to see if there were any Canadian growers.

      Deb – this is Fox Fiber cotton from Sally Fox. Cotton needs heat, don’t think you will find it growing commercially in Canada.

      Hi Blandina – Happy New Year. Hope you are well and enjoying life. I am on the conference committee so will be posting more on the blog as time goes by. The dates are June 27 – July 2 2017, it will be held at the University of Victoria. There will be workshops on June 28, 29 & 30. Still lots of details to arrange. The conference is usually held every 2 years, it is hosted by a Weavers’ Guild in the pacific NorthWest and is more frequently held in the U.S.
