Celebrating the International Year of Natural Fibres

The Michigan League of Handweavers celebrated its fiftieth anniversary with workshops and a conference at Hope College, in Holland in early August. The Ontario Handweavers and Spinners sponsored a juried show entitled “Fibre Unleashed: Pushing the Limits” at their biennial conference in Alliston in May. The Whonnock Weavers and Spinners (Canada) and several Lower Mainland weaving and spinning guilds organized a Country Fest “to re-connect traditional fiber arts with today’s urban lifestyles” as part of the celebration of the International Year of Natural Fibres.
