Mark the weekend of September 13 and 14, 2014 on your calendars because you won’t want to miss the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum’s 19th annual Fibrefest.
The two-day festival of textiles and fibre arts will close this year with a Lamb Race.
At 4 pm on September 14th, hundreds of wooden lambs will be thrown over the main falls in downtown Almonte, and the owners of the first three lambs to reach the finish line will win fabulous prizes.
3 locations — the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum, the Almonte Arena, and the Almonte Curling Club — visitors will find demonstrations, vendors, and exhibits — a full two-day festival of fibre arts!
Local guilds will demonstrate spinning, knitting, weaving, rug hooking, lacemaking, smocking and quilting.
Vendors include spinners, weavers, and fibre artists from across the province, as well as quilt shops and alpaca farms.
Whether you are interested in art, history, clothing, or textiles or are just looking for a great day out and about, Fibrefest will have something for you.
Admission to Fibrefest is $5.00 per day, which includes access to all sites.
