South Eastern Ontario Yarn Crawl
April 1 to May 25th
Featuring an excellent list of regional yarn shops including a few of our own vendors, the South Eastern Ontario Yarn Crawl is a great way to get to know all the fibrey goodness the region has to offer. The Crawl culminates at PEC FibreFest, so look for their presence beside Purlin’ J’s Roving Yarn Company, just outside the arena. For information on picking up your passport, check the Ravelry Group.

Kirk is a knitter, actor, and writer. He is also a ‘PK’ – a preacher’s kid: the product of three generations of Presbyterian ministers.
Stage credits include Billy Bishop Goes to War (Ergo Arts Theatre, Carousel); Merlin, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) (YPT); Dads! The Musical (Charlottetown, Stirling, Drayton); Romeo and Juliet (Ford Centre); More Munsch (The Grand); The War Show, A Flea in Her Ear, Don’t Dress for Dinner, and The Affections of May (Drayton).
Kirk has been knitting since 1988. In 1998, he apprenticed with Kaffe Fassett in England. In 2003, Kirk received a Chalmers Fellowship for Stitched Glass, an installation that took 15 years to knit. With The Knitting Pilgrim, he is now exploring the intersectionality of writing, performing and knitting – his most exciting adventure yet. www.kirkdunn.com.
