The venerable Cobble Hill Hall again welcomes the annual Fleece and Fibre Festival Saturday, Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Every year, wool producers, fibre artists, and vendors join with a big crowd of fibre fanciers for a day that will open your eyes if you’ve never visited the event before.
Colourful exhibits of knitting and spinning mix with chances to buy everything from raw fibres to exquisitely crafted items.
It’s a great chance to either buy fabulous holiday gifts or the materials to make them yourself because there are always experts around to share their knowledge and help you either get started or hone your skills.
The festival is the oldest celebration of fleece and fibre on Vancouver Island and, since its move to Cobble Hill, has found a really popular site that draws many, many enthusiasts to buy, learn and chat in a family-friendly atmosphere.
Lunch is available on site so come early and stay the day.
