Fairbanks Knitters Guild Fiber Mill Tour and Gathering – Open to the Public

We are kicking off our second year of the Fairbanks Knitters Guild with a tour of the new local fiber mill and a cozy get-together at the Folk School. The FKG is focused on knitting and crocheting in the Fairbanks community: increasing communication among knitters and crocheters, encouraging educational opportunities, raising awareness of our art form and helping those in need using our skills. The Guild begins its second year on March 1st and it is exciting to see how quickly we are growing!

The Fairbanks Knitters Guild will be taking a tour of the new Coyote Farm and Fiber Mill at 1pm on March 5th. Join us for an exciting, informative tour about how this mill is producing a wide variety of yarns and roving fiber from customers’ own fleece. This mill specializes in processing raw fleece from a variety of animals as well as blending with merino and other popular fibers. This is the first mill of its kind in Alaska and we are jazzed to finally have a local option for fiber processing. Come and see this fascinating process first hand- including some of the animals they raise for fiber right there on the farm!

After the tour, we will be meeting at the Folk School (less than a mile down the hill) from for knitting and socializing. Refreshments will be available, but feel free to bring something to share! A donation to help with the cost of refreshments is appreciated. It will be an informal gathering with casual conversation, but we also hope to hear from you about how to help our new Guild grow in 2017.

Both of these events are open to the public, free of charge. Space is limited for the mill tour, so please RSVP to Kalin Seaton (kalin.kellie@gmail.com) or mark your intention to attend on our Facebook event if you are interested. Hope to see you there!
