Vendor applications open on March 15 for the 2019 Manitoba Fibre Festival.
Applications will be accepted until APRIL 26.
Applicants will be notified by MAY 6.
Our market specializes in natural fibres. This includes fleeces and yarns, high quality crafts made with wool, alpaca, silk, cotton, linen and more; as well as tools for fibre artists and supplies for fibre farmers. We may include other items that we believe to be of interest to Festival visitors but our primary focus is on natural fibres and the fibre arts.
The Festival receives more applications than we can accommodate each year. Our goal in choosing vendors is to create a diverse market that will inspire our visitors. The great majority of our vendors live in Manitoba, and we are proud to promote local producers and artisans. We also include a few vendors from further afield who can bring something unique to the market.
The Manitoba Fibre Festival creates an environment that brings together producers and crafts people to build up and support a growing fibre arts industry and community in Manitoba.
We take pride in offering a friendly, supportive venue for learning new skills, for creative collaboration, and for celebrating local resources.
We value diversity and accessibility. At our events everyone is welcomed, accepted and respected; regardless of your age, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, ability, national or ethnic origin, political or religious belief or non-belief.
The Manitoba Fibre Festival venue is located on Treaty 1 territory, the original land of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Metis Nation. We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we wish to move forward in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration with Indigenous communities.
