Who we are
Edmonton's Yarn & Fibre Arts Festival
Since 2016, the Edmonton Fibre Frolic has connected fibre art enthusiasts -
makers, creators, teachers, learners
– everyone sharing a love for all
things yarn & fibre-related at an annual one-day event, which has now blossomed
into a biannual event. This spring, we are excited to offer our first
fully in-person event since 2019!
Edmonton, or Amiskwaciwâskahikan, as it's known in Cree, has the second-largest Indigenous population of any city in Canada.
We respectfully acknowledge that our event is celebrated on the traditional lands of First Nations and Métis Peoples. We acknowledge Treaty 6 territory—the traditional and ancestral territory of the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux and Nakota Sioux.
We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Settlements and the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 4 within the historical Northwest Métis Homeland.
We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations.
We are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us.
We make this acknowledgement in the hope of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
