Please mark your calendar and plan to attend the OUT OF THE BOX Fibre Artists and Kitchissippi United Church "FIBRE FLING" April 10 and 11th, 2015

Friday 10am-8pm
Saturday 10am-5pm
High Tea Saturday 12-5
Admission $5
High Tea an additional $10
Location:630 Island Park Drive, Ottawa    

The much sought after and so 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.

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. 

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! 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.

The Out of the Box members are passionate about fibre art. At our 2014  Fibre Fling,  34 members 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.
