Almonte Fibre Fest
September 7 - September 11
27TH ANNUAL FIBREFEST
Come out to the Friendly Town of Almonte on September 10th and 11th for the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum’s 27th Annual Fibrefest. Hosted at two locations; the Almonte Community Centre and the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum. Local guilds will demonstrate spinning, knitting, weaving, rug hooking, lacemaking, smocking and quilting. Vendors include finished fibre goods and other textile related supplies from across the province, as well as quilt shops and alpaca farms.
Admission to Fibrefest is $7.00 per day, which gives you access to both sites.
This year several hands-on workshops, lectures, and a performance will be taking place in conjunction with Fibrefest. This is your chance to roll up your sleeves and get felting, weaving or hooking with talented fibre artists and vendors. Workshops run from Wednesday through to Sunday (September 7–11) at both the museum and the community centre, and registration fees include free admission to the festival. Advance registration is required and some workshops may need you to bring some of your own supplies, so do check out the website and sign up early to avoid disappointment!
