Upper Canada Fibreshed’ers at TWIST

Written by: Sarah Jean Harrison

Fibre festival season is quickly approaching. As the summer winds down and we all start thinking about cooler temperatures and cosy fibres our minds collectively turn to the fun and excitement of fibre festivals. These festivals are a wonderful way to discover local fibre producers, connect with farmers, discover makers and artisans and generally strengthen our fibreshed community.

Last weekend a few of our members made the trip to St Andre Avellin, Quebec to experience Twist, Canada’s only bi-lingual fibre festival.

Below are some highlights from the weekend!
