I am happy to announce that our guild is going to be hosting an area at Fibres West. The event is a great collection of classes, speakers and vendors from around the province. Currently held at the AgRec Building on the Abbotsford Exhibition Park Grounds, the event is a fun way to do some one stop shopping and support local teachers as well. Check out the website for more information and a list of classes and speakers.
The lovely Brenda of Penelope Fibre Arts is the mind behind this great event. She was kind enough to join us for the February General meeting and tell us a bit about the exciting things lined up at Fibres West. In addition Brenda had questions for us about the classes she planned, the date of the event and a few other things; she is looking for honest and constructive feedback, so drop her a line with comments on Fibres West. Thanks so much!
As a guild we will be manning a drop in “sit and stitch” area with ball winders and swifts for folks to get started on their lovely purchases. We have volunteers lined up for the two days but more bodies are always welcome so if you have time to help let me know! My contact information is on the membership list. (Holly Lau)
Come one, come all! Lets have some fun!
