Nova Scotia Fibre Arts

This weekend is the Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival in Amherst. I am learning very quickly that there is a vibrant and exciting crowd of artists and fans. There are still a few spots available in some of the workshops.

We have amazing fibre and textile artists throughout Nova Scotia. We have the  internationally acclaimed like Laurie Swim of Lunenburg, or Marrie Berkelaar of Double Whale Woven Designs. How about our celebrated Cheticamp rug hookers? Or Deanne Fitzpatrick of Amherst?

We forget here in Nova Scotia to celebrate the rich fibre history of our own families, fibre arts that existed out of necessity and grew into pieces of art that reflect our history. Our quilts and rugs, that are still in use everyday, in our homes.

Come celebrate with the Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival!
