The Eighth Annual Oxford Fiber Arts Festival will be January 25th-28th, 2018!
In 2011, the University Museum working with the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council hoped to create coordinated exhibits that would reach beyond the museum walls and into the community. The partnership focused on an upcoming exhibit of Gees Bend Quilts, identifying community partners in the local quilters guild and Oxford's curated fiber shop, Knit1. This coordinated effort launched the Oxford Fiber Arts Festival showcasing exhibits by local fiber artists, a fiber market, workshops, and demonstrations. An immediate success and a welcome addition driving out the winter doldrums with an energetic gathering of fiber fans.
The 2018 Oxford Fiber Arts Festival would like to thank MaxxSouth for sponsoring this year's festival!
And special thanks to Robert Saarnio
