To all our vendors, volunteers, customers and followers, Sheila and I are sorry to have to announce that Sunshine Fibre Fest 2021 cannot go ahead as planned this year. We have booked Saturday May 7, 2022 for Sunshine Fibre Fest 2022 at ODAS Park. Many of our vendors are offering a huge variety of products on-line or by phone mail order , as well as various on-line knit-ins or classes or videos. Please support these whenever you can! Watch this space and we will post our vendors’ news and offerings as they arise.

Hand crafts are a wonderful antidote to our increasingly technological lives and help maintain heritage skills and techniques that are in danger of being lost.
By participating in textile crafts and supporting vendors at fibre festivals, we are continuing the development of tens of thousands of years of textile technological know-how that has helped humans thrive in diverse environments across the globe, and made our lives a little more beautiful.
