Tomorrow evening I head up Island for the Campbell River Fibre Fest. I will be one of the many teachers in varied fibre fields that will be congregating in Campbell River for the weekend!
My kits are ready for the Burka Cap class – a beaded lace cap; as are the handouts for it and the Thrumming class. There is still room in both of my classes if you were looking for a last-minute activity for the weekend.
On Saturday night there will be a special opening of the Campbell River Museum for the Fibre Fest Attendee’s. The museums most recent exhibit is on the history of Coastal Textiles – Threads Through Time; a Coastal Textile History and the curator will be there to speak about the exhibit and answer questions. Ticket are $10.00 and can be purchased at the Fibre Fest. Did I mention that the Curator and designer of the exhibit is my daughter Beth Boyce. I am so proud I could just “Burst”!
Last year the weather was spectacular – sunny and clear – I hope that we get that lucky this year. The Festival itself was busy – it started Friday evening with an incredible array of talented people sharing their skills and finished projects at a large-scale show and tell.
And then there was the market, demonstrations and classes for the rest of the weekend!
See you there!
