Activities

Monthly Meetings

We will continue to meet on the 3rd Monday of every month. We meet in various ways including in-person, Zoom and a hybrid of in-person and Zoom.

Visitor admission is $5, except for special guest presentations, when it is $10.

We have a Members show and tell at every meeting.  'Show' means sharing of fibre related accomplishments. 'Tell' is the sharing of anything that may be of interest to members (shows, workshops, talks).

Program Lineup

  • Monday, November 21 – We're building on the Glues and Adhesives session (held last March) with a talk about stiffeners and structures. Several members are already lined up to talk about what they have tried - I'm sure we have room for more. (Zoom meeting)
  • Monday, December 19 – Social time and an activity on meditative stitching (Zoom only)
  • Monday, January 16 - we'll have a presentation on upcycling our clothing into something more artistic (or thrift flips as it is sometimes called)

Workshops

Fibre art workshops are hosted once or twice a year from a variety of talented artists from across Canada and internationally.
