Fibre Fling 3 – Textile art show and sale
Kitchissippi United Church, 630 Island Park Drive, Ottawa, Ontario
Out-of-the-Box Fibre Artists and the Kitchissippi United Church invite you to a show and sale of fibre and mixed media art on Friday and Saturday in the church hall. This is a fundraiser for the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Hours: Friday 10 am-8 pm and Saturday 10 am-5 p.m. Admission is $5. High Tea will be available on Saturday 12-5pm for an additional $10. Light refreshments available throughout the show. For more information visit the News section of our website under Exhibitions at www.out-of-the-box.org
We are excited about this unique show after last year's success with 43 artists exhibiting over 200 pieces of fibre art - art quilts, mixed media, beading, embroidery, dolls, and much more. Our membership has grown and so have our colour challenge pieces which will be part of a special showing. We have expanded our sales table where you can purchase smaller works of art, art cards, jewelry, felted items, scarves, bags, journals, bookmarks....And of course there is the delicious high tea on Saturday! We hope to continue to raise awareness about the quality and variety of fibre art in our Region. And we hope to be able to raise money for a foundation that touches many lives. We are so proud to partner again with Kitchissippi Church and to be part of a fundraiser for the Stephen Lewis Foundation which continues to do grassroots work to turn the tide on AIDS in Africa and better the lives of AIDs orphans and their caregivers. This organization is based on a strong desire to work with local organizations to fight the spread of AIDS.
