Fibre-In Social

Friday, June 15 @ 6:30 pm

Fibre Artists unite, to enjoy a casual evening of your favourite craft. Our annual spin in has evolved, and now is a spin in, knit in, and whatever-fibre-art-you-love in! A casual, no commitments, informal social, come as you are, in and out as you like, and try a variety of fibres donated from vendors in the Merchant Mall. It’s a great opportunity to meet fellow participants, and try out some new fibres before you make that big purchase!

Celebrate Fibre Arts - Social

Saturday June 16 @ 6:30 pm

Join us for a celebration of Fibre Arts: the craft and the people that carry it forward. This celebration is a formal presentation of the graduates of our program and a keynote speaker. It’s an evening that recognizes hard work and appreciates our mutual passions. Light refreshments will be provided, and presentations will be followed by a social.

Fashion Show

Sunday, June 17 @ 7:30 pm

Are you proud of your first handmade item? Have you finally completed that epic project? Made something cool in class? Show off your stuff and inspire other kindred spirits with your handiwork. All fibre work welcome! Items can be dropped off with an entry form at the information desk before 1:30 pm on Sunday, June 18.

Silent Auction

Sunday, June 17
Bidding starts at noon and closes at 6 pm

Donations are gratefully accepted and will receive a tax-deductible receipt. Bring your item when you come. Items can include fibres, tools, creations, or anything you think fibre artists might be interested in. Fill out a “Friends of Fibre Week” donor form at the information desk and leave it with your item before noon Sunday. Proceeds are used to offset Fibre Week expenses.

Mystery Box Fundraising Challenge

All Weekend Long - Join the challenge!

Back for the second year, Fibre Week is calling out all fibre enthusiasts, samplers and artists to let their creativity run wild. This year, a mystery box of fibre will be available for purchase by donation, and the challenge is simple: use it to create something wonderful, wild, beautiful, meaningful, fun, or all of the above! Then bring it back next year to show off and share! There will definitely be prizes. Ask at the Registration desk.

All proceeds go towards funding a customized Master Spinner/Weaver pin for graduates.

Want to see what was created by the minds of your fellow fibre fanatics? Check out last year's participants and vote on your favorite at the Merchant Mall. There are prizes for the people's choice!

Did you participate last year? Be sure to bring your creation back this year to the registration desk or the staff at the Merchant Mall.
