Dornoch Fibre Fest 2020

Happy 10th anniversary to Fibre Fest!

Fibre Fest takes place this year from the 13th to 15th of March

This exciting event, held in mid-March each year, has become a favourite in the Dornoch Calendar and is an opportunity for you to immerse yourself in all things fibre. Fibre Fest, run by an enthusiastic group of local fibre artists, has now been running for 11 years now and this fantastic festival takes place across Dornoch in both the Social Club and West Church Hall.

Sewing, quilting, knitting and feltmaking; all these feature either as Masterclasses or drop-in demonstrations where you can try new skills. And of course it provides a great opportunity to browse the market area where you can buy those essential additions absolutely necessary to any serious fibre worker’s stash.

The Stash Buster is a great way to declutter your stash of crafting materials (Fabric, wool, haberdashery & equipment) at the stall in the Dornoch Social Club over the weekend. Turn your excess into cash whilst supporting the ongoing success of Fibre Fest (10% of each sale goes to DADCA). Download a form and complete before entering your materials.
