Visitors to the 2017 Manitoba Fibre Festival will be able to see many craft techniques and tools demonstrated, and even try out a few for themselves.
Members of the local community sharing their skills include the Northern Lights Lacemakers, Winnipeg Embroiderers Guild, Manitoba Weavers and Fibre Arts Guild, Red River Ruggers and Prairie Edge Rug Hookers, machine knitters, and spinners.
The Sons of Lugh – Viking Age Living History group demonstrate historically accurate crafts from the Viking age including tablet weaving, spindle spinning, and sprang.
Look for the Miami School Fibre Arts Club who will be displaying their projects and their fibre processing skills.
For a special treat, visit Mr Ted Stevens and his antique sock machine collection.
Check out the sheep shearing demonstrations, cooking demonstrations, and more at our two stage areas.
Fibre people love to share their passion. You will find inspiration and something new to learn everywhere you look. Seating areas are provided for spinners and knitters to gather round in good company. Bring your current project and plan to stay awhile!
