FibreFest 2020 will no longer go ahead
We're very sad to announce that FibreFest 2020 will no longer go ahead.
Sacred Spaces have, quite understandably, cancelled all bookings at their Convent in Singleton for the foreseeable future. The stallholders have been informed and will of course be receiving full refunds.
This is not a quick and easy event to organise so we must thank Sharon Holstein who has already committed many hours to ensuring that this year's festival would be a success.
We hope to be back in October 2021 and will endeavour to make the festival the biggest and best so far.

To celebrate our 30th Birthday in 2016 (Happy Birthday to us!) we hosted our inaugural wonderful day of everything fibre at the Sisters of Mercy Convent in Singleton, the heart of the Hunter Valley, NSW.
There were workshops, demonstrations, retail vendors, food, music and even a place to sit, socialise and practice craft. It was a day filled with colour, enthusiasm, sun and retail therapy. 2018 saw the event expanded to 2 days with full day workshops also available and the debut of the FibreFest Shawl.
