Fibrations is a new fibre arts festival in Victoria, BC, Canada
Sunday August 21 from 10 to 4
at St. Ann’s Academy orchard, 835 Humboldt St
their site is www.fibrations.ca
The demonstrations will include Tunisian crochet, knitting with wire, weaving, making yarn from fabric, and Saori weaving, which sounds intriguing, because it’s somehow free form.
Cathy Miller the Singing Quilter will be performing along with others.
This festival was initiated by the owners of Knotty By Nature, who have gathered an organizing group to get this rolling. They must live near us, because their bicycle is always parked by the hedge. Isn’t this the coolest outsider art?
IN OTHER NEWS:
My giveaway of Quinn McDonald’s Raw Art Journaling book will close at 3:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Thursday morning. Weird time, you say? Well, yeah, but it’s midnight on the West Coast, giving local folks an extra chance to get in the fun. When I get up on Thursday morning, Young Sprout and I will be randomly pulling a name from the hat.
To join in: go to the previous post and leave a comment. I’ll be in touch with the winner to get their snail mail address.
Go for it!
