Vancouver Island Fibre Festivals and Fairs

Thanks to all who came by to visit us at the Campbell River Fibre Festival.  We had a great time and were so busy. A great thanks to the organizers.  Especially enjoyed the band ” Inclusion”  at the Saturday evening reception. Wow! can’ t wait till next year.

We were off to the 100 Mile Fleece and Fibre Fair at the Bradley Center.  Another fun filled day with our Fibre folks on home turf.  Both festivals have grown into very worth while events. There are so many exciting choices to select from.

The last week on this month (June) Diane and I are packing up and heading down to Victoria for the ANWG 2017 Conference being held and the University of Victoria.  There will be many workshops and of course a fabulous market place.

****  The store will be closed Jun 26 to July 3 in our absence. *****

 

In August look for us at FIBRATIONS again. at the Fairfield Gonzales Community Place.    check it out— https://fibrationsvic.wordpress.com

In October we will  at the annual Kingfisher Retreat and then off to the Cowichan Fleece and Fibre Event.

Stop by, we love seeing you!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Yes Fall has arrived.  Thanks to Marion our teacher we had our first Felting class in September and what fun it was.  She taught some very advanced techniques in a short time.  She is returning on October 22 for another class. This class is called “Rats, Bats, Cats and Pumpkins”  You guessed it Halloween theme.  Contact the studio to reserve your spot, as there are a few spaces left.

We will be closed on Thanksgiving Sunday and Monday.  Enjoy time with your families.

We will also be meeting weekly to create hand woven Christmas decorations on Zoom Looms. Watch the events page for more information as it comes available.

If you stop by the studio you will see the new SCHACHT FLAT IRON SPINNING WHEEL!  So exciting it arrived! You can also see it at the Cowichan Fleece and Fibre Festival Oct 15.

The last week in October is the Kingfisher Spinners Retreat. I will be there as coordinator with Dona and also a vendor along side Anna from Qualicum Bay Fibre Works. There are still spaces available. It is a wonderful way to relax with friends between the holidays.

In November we will be starting a Cricket Club “no athletics” required. Come learn to weave on these delightful little ridged heddle looms.

We don’t want Summer to end:-( Reality Check– September is here!

Summer seemed to fly by this year.  We have been so busy.  Did you see us at Coombs Fall Fair doing demonstrations or see us  in Victoria at Fibrations? Boy was it windy there, but we had fun. Our summer special batts were so popular we may have to keep them going  well into fall. Have you checked them out at the studio??

We are now getting ready for fall classes.  We are having a needle felting class on Saturday September 17 2016.  Marion Vandall will be coming up from Victoria to teach.   Reserve your spot as class will be limited to 10 people. Please check the events page for more good things to come!

I have pre ordered Schacht’s New Flatiron  Spinning Wheel.  Can not wait till it arrives and give it a “whorl” so to speak.  Please contact me if you want to be one of the first owners. flatiron-front-500x546

Springtime in Errington

It is spring in Errington. I picked kale, salad greens and rhubarb from my garden last weekend. It felt great. The apple orchard is ready to burst into soft pink blossoms. The little green swallow are busy nesting in their boxes. They were back a month early this year. There is a pair of Canada Geese nesting near one of the ponds on the farm too.
