The Queensland Spinners Weavers and Fibre
Artists will hold a Christmas Fair this
Sunday, November 25 in Brisbane, Australia. The annual event draws several hundred visitors
and is held at the guild's facility, The Fibrecraft House. Guild members will
be demonstrating and selling a wide variety of handmade crafts. In addition to
spinning, knitting, and weaving, booths will include handmade books, baskets,
and even a selection of second-hand supplies. The guild has been active since
1969, but changed the group name to include fiber artists in 2006 to reflect
the plethora of crafts that members were exploring. Shoppers will also enjoy
great food and live music while they come out to support local artisans.
The Fibrecraft House is also home to The Emporium, the guild's
fiber arts store. Follow

during the Christmas Fair and "a massive
amount of fibre arts accessories will be available, ranging from raw fleece and
hand painted silk fibres to spinning, weaving and dyeing supplies."
