Announcing our Fourth Annual Fibre Fling
Spring is just around the corner - honest it is!! And it is almost time for Fibre Fling 4 - a collaboration between Out of the Box fibre artists and the Kitchissippi United church. I am reprinting here the information that is posted on the Out of the Box website
Fibre Fling 4 Show and Sale!

High Tea Saturday 12-5
Admission $5 High Tea an additional $10
Location: Kitchissippi United Church, 630 Island Park Drive, Ottawa
MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR OUR FOURTH ANNUAL FIBRE FLING!
Out of the Box Fibre Artists are pleased to announce our Fourth Annual Fibre Fling and Tea at Kitchissippi United Church, 630 Island Park Drive, Friday, April 10, 10 am to 8 pm, and Saturday April 11, 10 am to 5 pm. A delicious high tea will be served on Saturday, April 11 from 12 to 5 pm. Light refreshments will be available throughout the rest of the show. Once again we are partnering with Kitchissippi United Church to raise money for the Stephen Lewis Foundation which supports AIDS orphans and their caregivers in Africa. At the same time we hope to raise awareness about the rich diversity of fibre art being created in the Ottawa area. What could be better than an art show coupled with a delicious high tea and at the same time providing much needed help for a worthy cause!
Our members are passionate about fibre art. Last year at Fibre Fling, 34 members of Out of the Box exhibited 171 pieces from framed art work, quilted wall hangings, mixed media, wearables, felting, embroidery, beadwork, rug hooking and much more! This year we will also have on display art work from our hand stitching challenge along with this year’s colour challenge pieces. We will have an expanded sales area where you can purchase small artworks, wearables like scarves, hats and bags, jewelry, bookmarks, art cards and other creations.
Admission is $5 and if you wish to indulge in the High Tea the cost is an additional $10. An array of mouth-watering sandwiches, scones and sweets will be provided and served by volunteers of Kitchissippi United Church, raising much needed funds for the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Fibre Fling has raised over $10,000 for the Stephen Lewis Foundation over the last three years and we hope to raise more this year for this important work. So please plan to join us for our fourth annual exhibition, tea and sale! Bring your friends to enjoy the artwork and sales area then take a break for tea surrounded by colourful works of art. We hope that our exhibition will be eye candy for people who love fibre as well as those of you who are being introduced to fibre art for the first time.
You might even be inspired to join Out of the Box or visit one of our meetings. We are happy to answer your questions about our group and process your membership form on the spot! We are always pleased to welcome new members to Out of the Box - a place where we can learn from each other, challenge ourselves, and grow as artists.
