The Fabric of Canada: The Knitters of Newfoundland & Labrador

Hey, folks! Have you had a chance to view The Fabric of Canada: The Knitters of Newfoundland & Labrador?

If you haven’t, give it a watch!

The video was created by the Campaign for Wool – Canada.

From their YouTube channel: The Knitters of Newfoundland & Labrador highlights the story of NONIA and Yvonne Sheppard. NONIA is a social enterprise that allows families to supplement their incomes by knitting. They employ roughly 175 knitters throughout the province. The NONIA knitting collective has been a part of Newfoundland & Labrador’s cultural community for over a century.

Have a look and enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
