Activities

Monthly Meetings

Regular monthly meetings are now virtual, we will continue to meet virtually on the 3rd Monday of every month. Log on information will be sent to members. Zoom meeting format will continue until Public Health regulations allow us to meet in person once again.

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, June 21st – Hooking Outside the Lines with guest speaker Robin Whitford.
    Robin is a passionate textile artist, rug hooking teacher and creativity mentor. She loves to share her passion for all things hooking related with those who are curious to try new things.
  • Monday, July 19th - No meeting.
  • Monday, August 16th – Tentative tailgate gathering at City View United Church parking lot - a chance to reconnect in person with your OOTB artist friends!
    Bring your lawn chair and the latest fibre art projects you have completed or are working on. We can sit socially distanced, but don't forget your mask! This meeting will depend fully on Covid limitations for group sizes for the date in August, and will be confirmed by email a week ahead based on the status of Ontario's re-opening.

Workshops

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

UPCOMING WORKSHOP
