LandMade will be taking place this year at the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen St. W) on Sunday, Feb. 4 from 10-4.
It is free to everyone.
LandMade is a fibre event that aims to connect urban makers with local fibre farms. 10 farms will be bringing fleece, roving, yarn (hand-spun as well as mill spun) and batts from the animals they raise on their farms. They represent a wide variety of sheep breeds (including BFL, Corriedale, Romney, Icelandic, Shetland, and interesting crosses) as well as alpaca. Everything is available in natural colours, and there will be some dyed materials available also. Vendors all operate under the guidelines of the Upper Canada Fibreshed, which means that any dyeing is done using botanical, environmentally-responsible dyestuffs.
A spin-in and knit-in will be held on the ballroom stage, so people are welcome to bring their spindles and needles. There is also a cafe attached to the ballroom, where food and drinks are available for those wishing to visit afterwards.
LandMade is sponsored by the Upper Canada Fibreshed, and all of the participating farms are members.
