CraftBoston™: Fiber Stories

Fiber Stories Splash Page

July 16 - August 29, 2021

Coming Soon!


WHAT’S YOUR FIBER STORY?

It seems like everyone remembers how and when they first learned to work with fabric or fiber. Your first weaving project on that third-grader’s loom, how did it turn out? Did your parents or grandparents teach you how to make a basket? What happened to that sweater you knit, did you finish it or has it remained, unfinished, in a closet corner?

CraftBoston: Fiber Stories highlights the strong bond between the fiber arts and storytelling. Over the course of six weeks this summer, we will explore the creativity and versatility of more than 40 contemporary artists working with fiber or using traditional fiber techniques in other media. Join our craft community July 16th – August 29th for artist interviews and demonstrations, conversations with experts in the field, and the chance to shop our artists’ one-of-a-kind handmade wares!

ADIFF's Fiber Story

STITCHING IT TOGETHER

We were recently introduced to a contemporary fiber designer who uses upcycled traditional “waste materials” to create clothing and accessories in a manufacturing facility in Athens, Greece, that employs resettled refugee tailors from Afghanistan. Founder Angela Luna and her team at ADIFF designed a jacket that can turn into a tent to provide assistance to homeless and refugee populations. Watch this brief video to learn more about this inspirational business, and stay tuned for more Fiber Stories throughout the show!

We couldn’t be more excited about sharing Fiber Stories and the wonderful pieces we will offer in our online retail shop this summer. You are invited to join us!

The storytelling and retail experience begins here on July 16, 2021!
