Fibrations was a wonderful success! The weather was perfect. The new venue, at the Fairfield Community Centre grounds at Robert Porter Park here in Victoria, was great, and it was so good to see so many friends and supporters of Chaotic Fibres. The questions, sales and comments all showed that felting, spinning and knitting are very popular right now!
Our next fibre event will be in Cobble Hill at the Cowichan Valley Fleece and Fibre Festival on Saturday, October 17. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to be part of this event. From all accounts and from what we have seen visiting this event previously, it is one of the best island fibre festivals for the range of felting, spinning, knitting and weaving supplies offered for sale.
We will be racing until that time as we are in the middle of a family move to a different location in Victoria. Our new home is double the size and it has a perfect layout for Chaotic Fibres, with a large studio space and ample room to organize our online store’s ever expanding supply of wool, silks, all sorts of specialty fibres and the handful of felt making tools and other products we carry. In the meantime, we have moved our stock into storage until September 5 so any orders taken now can only be processed after the 5th.
Watch for our next blog announcing the resumption of normal business in a couple of weeks! We look forward to the improvements we are making to Chaotic Fibres!
