Huge thanks to all who took part in the first Fibrefeelia Fest making it a success.
It was wonderful to see so many folks who came from as far as Sask. and the Lower Mainland.
We laughed and learned, met new people, developed new skills ad saw and felt yarns that
some of us only knew from the internet. Already we're planning for next year and hope you are too.
Check into the website periodically to see how things evolve over the next twelve months.
FibreFeelia Fest, a delightful and friendly gathering of all things fibre includes workshops, vendors, displays and demonstrations. We have a great community of fibre producers, spinners, knitters, weavers, designers, quilters and felters who we expect will be participating.
