About the Festival

The Online International Fiber Festival is a yearly trip through eight fiber-important regions of the world. Started in 2020 as a response to the Covid-19 lockdowns, the goal of the festival is to give people a taste of travel while celebrating the fiber arts and our amazing community of makers.

Our biggest goal is to inspire you to get in your car or hop on a plane and see some of these wonderful places in person, experience the cultures that make our human family a diverse and beautiful group to be a part of, and learn traditional techniques directly from the experts. 

But we also understand that not everyone can travel. Health, finances, or family commitments may keep them at home for a season. The festival will continue regardless of our ability to actually travel, and together we can enjoy this taste of the beautiful world we inhabit. The May 2021 festival is up! We hope you can join us!
