12th Annual Fibre Arts Competition
This Fibre Arts Competition is open to any fibre artist. The piece of work must include at least 50% of alpaca fibre (huacaya or suri), but any other fibre after that is acceptable. Dyed fibre is also acceptable.
The 2019 competition is being judged by Harriet Boon.
There are 6 categories to enter:
- Handspinning (sponsored by Woodstock Fibre Festival)
- Weaving (sponsored by Legacy Lane Fibre Mill)
- Novelty (sponsored by Belfast Mini Mills)
1st to 3rd place ribbons are awarded, and there are monetary prizes awarded as well. In addition, the Judge awards a Judge’s Choice ribbon.
There is a People’s Choice Award announced on Sunday. Anyone attending the show can vote for their favourite entry on a ballot at the display.
The Fibre Arts Competition Judge for 2019 is Harriet Boon.
