The 2008 Victoria FibreFest will take place this year from June 20th - 22nd, and it's shaping up to be a fabulous event once again.

Quadra Island's FUN KNITS YARN SHOP is on board again as this year's major sponsor, and I'm really excited about working with Shelley Mackie and her team again to make this year's event lots of fun for all of us!

My special guest this year will be Vancouver-based designer extra-ordinaire SIVIA HARDING, and I'm also really excited about that! I had admired Sivia's work for some time when I finally got to meet her at a Victoria Knitter's Guild workshop a few years ago, and I've been watching her career blossom, all over the globe, ever since! Sivia will have some of her work in the Friday night fashion show, she'll teach a class on Saturday afternoon, be our guest speaker on Saturday night, and then be with us all day at the Market and Knit-Out in Saxe Point Park on Sunday. You can read more about Sivia, and check out her amazing designs, at

Many details are yet to be worked out, but this year's format will be similar to last year's: a dinner and fashion show on Friday night, classes and a 'Yarn Crawl' on Saturday during the day, our guest speaker in the evening, and the Saxe Point 'grand finale' on Sunday. For more information, and to find out how you can participate (or sponsor the event), check out .

Mark the dates on your calender now, and please forward this message or pass it on to anyone you think might be interested in the 2008 Victoria FibreFest -- thanks!
