Feature Needles in a Haystack

We enjoyed last year’s summer party so much, we couldn’t resist striking again this year! 

 As most of you know by now, as much as we love knitting and fiber, we enjoy food, cooking, and we love having friends over.

 While our own house is too small to accommodate our wish, our friends over at Fromagerie La Station de Compton have kindly agreed, for a 2nd year in a row, to welcome us in their field for a day of knitting and crochet among friends! 

 

WHEN

 August 6, 2016, between 10 am and 5 pm 

WHERE

Fromagerie La Station de Compton, 440, Hatley Road (route 208), Compton, PQ 

WHAT

 Bring a chair, a parasol, a lunch! 

The Fromagerie will also serve DELICIOUS grilled cheese sandwiches (you want one).

 Don’t forget your knitting and your friends : we want to spend time with you! 

Don’t forget to bring your parasol and in case of rain their will be a covered area.
