A One Day Fibrations Festival

August 19 saw me wandering the Orchard  at St Anne's Academy where this years Fibrations Festival was held again this year.  Victoria can boost an amazing number of Fibre artists and this is the place where we can find them all together sharing their "knowledge and enthusiasm".  So if your heart skips a beat for luscious yarns, many things woolly and buttons galore this was the place to be.


 Fabulous knit patterns from Jane Richmond and yes I had to buy one but I wanted an easy one so hand warmers it was.
 I'm taking my second level knitting class from Rebecca - nook (http://inanook.blogspot.ca/) .  She is all things knitty and here is her booth.  I snagged a couple of her mug warmers and who knows, maybe one will show up in giveaway some day!

  I loved these hats, I think I was a hat fashionista in a previous life.
 Buy a ticket and you get to put your name into the bag to win that prize.





 Now isn't this a rainbow of goodness.

 If you can't find a button here, well then they just don't make it anywhere.







 Sure would love to know how to make this!






Our local Quilt Guild was also in attendance.
 So though I'm not a Fibre Fanatic I do appreciate what is out there and enjoy seeing people who enjoy their passion just as much as I do. I hope you can keep the creative juices flowing.

What a wonderful event! I'm sitting here under a ceiling fan with the air conditioner on and still sweating, so I can't even imagine wool right now, but it won't be long before it cools down and I'll wish I had some!

Thanks for sharing this. Brings back memories of the show held up in Sechelt every year. Until she developed Alhemiers, my mother and I used to sttend every year. Sadly, she passed away this March.
P.S. Do you belong to the Victoria Quilt Guild? Just wondering cause my Aunt does.
New to this blog following, don't have a blog and not sure how to set this up so I get responses therefore including my email.
