Mills in the Maritimes

Mini-Mills Ltd. is the company that makes carding equipment. Here is their
web site. Sheila Sutherland, Linda Nobles and Hazel Spencer from Mini-Mills
joined us at our Maritime Spinning Retreat this past fall, they are all
lovely women.

There is also MacAusland’s on PEI, http://www.peisland.com/wool/

In New Brunswick there is Briggs and Little,

If you think you might make it to Nova Scotia, we love to have visitors. Of
course a potluck would be in order. There are also a couple of older mills
in Nova Scotia, and several fibery places to visit. I live in Wolfville,
where Mary Black spent a good portion of her life.
