Fibre gathering July 26th

SOFAAR invites you to a BYOP (Bring Your Own Project) gathering on July 26, 6 to 8 p.m., upstairs at ARTsPLACE (396 St. George Street, Annapolis Royal).
This is a time to work on your current project, maybe get some help with a snag, and visit with your fellow SOFAAR members.
For those participating in East Meets West, this is an opportunity to get any questions answered about finishing, hanging sleeves, etc., and/or to submit your work.
If you are putting a piece or pieces in the Members’ Exhibit (due date August 16th for submissions) and you would like that photographed for the submission, please bring along that work as well.
Céleste will be on hand to answer questions about this exhibit.
We hope to see you there!

Come Play with Us: 2nd annual

SOFAAR will be hosting its second annual Come Play with Us communal fibre-crafting event at the Annapolis Royal Firehall again this year.

We would love to hear from you all about participating. Last year, over 200 visitors came through the Firehall to see what working with fibre was all about. We had a such a great time and so did the kids and parents who came out to see.

Many men and children learned how to sew on a button, do some hooking, try some wet-felting and pick up a needle!

Come to craft for a couple of hours or all day.

Come and do a demo for everyone to see.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Christine at: info@sofaar.ca
