It's a Virtual Fibre Festival!

May 29 & 30, it's time to take the lemons that covid gave us...and make lemonade!

While it's still not safe to gather in person to share yarns, fibre, and crafty skills, we decided to take the traditional Edmonton Fibre Frolic online. The beautiful thing about hosting it online is that we aren't constrained by capacity limits in a building, or by proximity and drive times!

This allowed us to bring together a truly international team of workshop instructors and lecturers, experienced in online skills delivery, so that everyone can benefit from their wisdom, whether near or far.

It also allows our beloved local Alberta yarn and fibre producers to have an international audience! We're very proud of the artistic and practical skills found in our Alberta fibre community, and we're excited to share that talent with fibre lovers all over the world.

Join us for engaging keynote speakers, skill-building workshops in several modalities, and dedicated shopping time to explore our Virtual Vendor Village.

:: Rigid heddle weaving
