Cashgora Talk and Trunk Show
May 19, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
May 19, 11:00 am – 4:00 pm. Lecture at 1:15 | FREE | Registration not required, but encouraged so we will know how many chairs to set up
Casey from Cashmere People will be in the shop on May 19 from 11:00 to 4:00 pm with a full range of Cashgora yarn available for purchase. Cashgora is spun from a cashmere-type goat that lives on the Pamir mountains, one of the highest in the world. The range lies at the western junction of the Himalayas.
At 1:15 pm, Casey will hold a talk about the lives and industry of the hard-working rural women in Tajikistan who make the yarn to help support their families. These women have few opportunities of making a living and the yarn provides valuable income to their families.
FREE, but we encourage you to call the shop at (401) 337-5578 if you plan on attending the lecture so we can get an idea of the number of chairs to set up.
