The 2021 lineup on the Fiberworld stages promises to be amazing, edifying and entertaining. This year, both stages are open to all attendees for the same ticket price! Have a front row seat (on the internet you’re always in the front row!), and enjoy…
Have you always wanted to know about the wood used to make drop spindles? What about the history of tatting? Have you ever heard Abby Franquemont (cool thing from last year)?
Learn about heritage crafts from people actually of those heritages.
Hear speakers discuss the history of the arts and crafts business, socio-economics and crafting, and politics and trends in the crafting community.
Attend a demonstration of heritage skills, lost or endangered arts, or tours of creators’ lives, worlds, and creative spaces. Have you always wondered what your favorite designer’s kitchen looks like? Us too. You’ll get a video tour.
Meet quilters from the Hawaiian quilting community, learn all about what it actually means to get someone’s goat. And then what to do when you have a live goat in your yard. Forever.
Don’t forget morning Not-Yoga-at-All with Kel. Wake up, shake off the pieces of fiber and evidence of last night’s debauch in the lounge, and move to soothing New England sounds of dogs barking, the neighbor’s chainsaw and hunters firing randomly at things in the nearby woods. Breathe in… out… in… out…
As with all stages, the live content is always the most exciting. Fiberworld’s live panels are no exception! Come hear a group of speakers discuss topics from “How we got into the yarn dyeing business” to “Designing our fandom” to “Racism in the fiber community and why aren’t we talking more about it?”
As always, we can’t really predict how these panels will go except that they’ll be smart, funny, honest and incredibly thought-provoking.
The Fiberworld Fashion Show is one of the show’s marquee events. A fascinating collection of garments and more curated by the Fiberworld Video Goddess lovingly displayed and demonstrated in both video and still images. Our hosts will provide live commentary and describe each item and its special characteristics.
