Fibrefest 2014 coming September 13-14

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 over the main falls in downtown Almonte!

The show runs Saturday September 13 from 10am-5pm and Sunday September 14 from 10am-4pm


At three locations—the Museum, the Almonte Arena, and the Almonte Curling Club—visitors will find demonstrations, vendors, and exhibits—a full two-day festival of fibre arts! “That’s My Style,” vintage clothing show and sale will have a large number of vintage clothing dealers, giving patrons the opportunity to enjoy and purchase a huge variety of vintage fashions in one location. Button Mania will also return to Fibrefest this year, with displays of WW I era military and fashion buttons, alongside button vendors. Members of the Ottawa Valley Button Club will be present to identify your special buttons.

The Friends of the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum will again be providing tea room services, featuring homemade goodies, beverages and sandwiches all available at a reasonable price.

I will be there-will you?
