Wool and Fiber Arts Festival
16th April 2021
Throughout 2020, despite everything the world endured, there were still shining rays of light as artists and crafters employed their prodigious creativity to come up with ways to keep creating and sharing.
One the many restrictions we faced globally, was the cancellation of festivals and conferences. However, Ellen Zawada wasn’t going to let that hinder the efforts of the independent spinners, dyers, woollen mills and fibre artists she knew. In April 2020 she decided to set up a virtual festival, entitled the Wool and Fiber Arts Festival, and it has since gone from strength to strength.
The virtual festival doesn’t just bring independent vendors together for monthly live sales, it also offers informational videos, giveaways, knit-alongs and a vibrant, engaged community. Regardless of where in the world you are, if you enjoy anything to do with fibre arts, you’re welcome to join the Facebook group and get involved.
No matter what happens in the world, the one thing we can be sure of is that the passion of the crafting community will never wane.
