Fibernate Classes & Events are on hiatus until we can gather together safely. I know many of us are fibernating at home, crafting together on zoom, and supporting our mental health at the same time. It’s important to also support our local vendors through this challenging time, please go to the links here to explore their online shops, and know your purchases are helping sustain their livelihoods.
My wish for 2021 is good health for all, and a return to in-person gathering!
