25TH ANNUAL FIBREFEST
It is that time of the year again where Almonte is normally crowded with fibre artists and fibre art enthusiasts. This year however due to the limits on social gatherings and with an eye towards public health recommendations our usual festival of the fibre arts; Fibrefest, is happening online!
Join us online on Fibrefest weekend, September 11th to September 13th to shop, browse, and support your favorite fibre artists all while supporting the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum.
Over the coming month we will be adding more vendors who are participating, sponsors to this year’s event and of course all the fantastic workshops to our websites so be sure to check back regularly.

DO HERITAGE AND ARTS MATTER TO YOU?
The museum requires the help and generosity of people like you to run efficiently. It costs approximately $820 a day to operate this museum, making our annual operations budget close to $300,000. We count on donations to help meet this expense.
Without these contributions, the museum cannot present spectacular exhibits and events that the community and beyond enjoy. Please consider making a donation to the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum.
