Moved! Settled – more or less! We’re back in business and getting ready for the Cowichan Valley Fleece and Fibre Festival. Yes, we have finally moved our stock out of storage and into our new home after almost two months of chaos and disruption. Sharon loves the much, much larger, improved and more convenient space for the business. We’re still in Victoria and still at a location that makes local deliveries easy.
We hope our local friends will venture out to Cobble Hill on October 17th for our next fibre festival. The Cowichan Valley Fleece and Fibre Festival is Vancouver Island’s longest running fibre fair, so we feel so fortunate to have been able to be included for this year. The Cobble Hill Community Hall dates back to 1921 and is the local centre of community spirit in promoting the values and lifestyle of rural living and agriculture.
We know our unique assortment of quality wools, silks and specialty fibres for felters and spinners will add positively to the mix! As always, if there’s something special you would like us to have on hand, let us know and we’ll try to make room for it. Visit our Online Store for ideas! There will be a total of 25 vendors with everything from all sorts of local fibre and products to weaving supplies and hand spun goodies, demonstrations of rug hooking and braiding, ceramic buttons and embellishments, organic skin care products from Cobble Hill, spinning wheels, hand spindles and small looms.
We’ve visited this event in previous years, and we have been so impressed with the range of products and quality of the merchandise vendors offer. It’s a small venue at this lovely, old community hall, so the challenge for us is creating a display that allows us to showcase the range of products Sharon loves to collect.
Hope we see you at the Cobble Hill Community Hall and Fairgrounds! The Fleece and Fibre Festival opens at 10am and runs to 4pm as a one day event. Come early, stock up!
