Fibres West 2016 is our next fibre event. This is BC’s largest fibre festival and it was a great success for us last year. This year is the eighth consecutive Fibres West and there are almost 50 vendors signed up so it’s worth travelling to. Last year we saw visitors from the US, as far east as Ontario and as far north as Yukon! Laurie Steffler will be leading classes on felted scarves and shawls, bags and baskets plus there will be classes on weaving, basketry, lace, spinning, knitting and rug hooking. Free lectures run throughout the days. Fibres West will be held at the Cloverdale Arena, a half hour drive from the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal for Vancouver Islanders planning to make this a day trip.

Other festivals and sales we will be visiting in the coming months: 100 Mile Fleece and Fibre Festival in Coombs; Fibrations in Victoria, Cowichan Fleece and Fibre in Cobble Hill.
