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, August 15 – A special off-site outdoor social evening. Details to come!
  • Monday, September 19 – Membership Renewals, and an Interactive Activity to help us make plans for OOTB future activities! (In person at City View United – this meeting will NOT be held over Zoom)
  • Monday, October 17 – We are working on having Line Dufour speak to our group about her upcoming show 'Fate Destiny and Self-Determination' at the MVTM Museum. Have you prepared and submitted a piece for her show? (Hybrid meeting)
  • Monday, November 21 – Since the glues & adhesives meeting was so useful, we've decided to hold an evening where we can talk about Stiffeners. There should be much to share! (Zoom meeting)
  • Monday, December 19 – A Social over Zoom. We're working on a hands-on activity for this meeting (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)
