In recent years, knitting, crocheting, and weaving have all enjoyed a major resurgence as popular pastimes across many age groups. Here in Winnipeg, we’re proud to contribute to these venerable artistic traditions, which will be showcased this month at the 5th Annual Manitoba Fibre Festival at the Red River Exhibition Park. On Friday, September 15, and Saturday, September 16, you can join this exceptional gathering of vendors and artisans from across Canada to browse the latest fibre products and participate in workshops for weavers, felters, spinners, knitters, and more. You’ll even get an up-close look at the many delightful farm animals, including alpacas, llamas, and sheep, that make these fun and practical crafts possible. Remember, fall is now upon us, which means winter is soon to follow, so come down to the Fibre Festival and learn the latest techniques for making that perfect piece of snowy weather attire.
Address: Red River Exhibition Park, 3977 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg
