26TH 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!
The market and shopping portion of Fibrefest is postponed until September 2022 but we hope you will still participate in any way you can!
Join us online on Fibrefest weekend, September 8th to September 12th to take part in online workshops, watch virtual demonstrations, and support your favorite fibre artists all while supporting the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum. Workshops and demonstrations will all be taking place online this year. Please visit our website and Facebook page for descriptions of workshops and how you can sign up.

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.
