Surrey Museum hosting Fibre Crafts Festival

The Surrey Museum is inviting the public for a "family-friendly, interactive celebration of all things fibre."

Come join the fun at the Surrey Museum Aug. 15 for the Fibre Crafts Festival.

On Saturday, Aug. 15 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. people can head to the Surrey Museum (17710 56A Ave.) to see demonstrations of heritage crafts such as spinning, knitting and weaving at the Fibre Crafts Festival.

There’s also an opportunity to meet with real Angora bunnies and Shetland sheep as they show off their fuzzy coats.

Children can participate in take-home textile crafts during the festival.

The festival is all ages and admission is by donation.

On the same day there is a “Drop Spindle Spinning” workshop from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. by sign-up only.

Participants can use a blending board to mix colourful fibres that are unique. Afterwards, learn to spin them on a Turkish drop spindle to create a one-of-a-kind yarn skeins.

The fee is $45.50 with a supply fee of $12. People are asked to pre-register by calling 604-592-6956.
