Welcome

 

FiberCamp Boston 2013 is a community-created conference for fiber and fabric craft enthusiasts.

 

Fiber camp sprouts from the idea that everyone has something to share and teach. Connect with your community by sharing your passion and learning from your peers.

 

Participants can come simply to learn, or present, teach, and share smaller, bite-sized ideas and techniques ranging from beginning Fair Isle knitting to photography to making a duct tape mannequin. Some presentations might be demonstration-only or completely PowerPoint-based, and some will be hands-on. Because this conference is powered by the people who attend it, you have a voice in the conversation.

 

Want to see a demonstration about how to start quilting? Ask for it on the requests page. Want to share your tips and techniques for recycling yarn from a sweater you picked up at a thrift store? Post it on the enablers page!

 

FiberCamp Boston is not just about fiber and fabric crafting! If you're interested in Ravelry, blogging, social media, social networking, podcasting, photography, Etsy, or are just someone curious about learning about fiber activties, then please join us—and bring a friend or colleague.

Hello! We think Katie left her embroidered dishcloth at MIT where everyone was meeting Sunday after the last session. It was a tan dishcloth with green and two orange embroidered flowers on it. If anyone happened to pick it up, could you e-mail us at caitirin (at) gmail.com? We're happy to reimburse shipping! :)

Hi, Rachel; we saw the embroidered dishcloth and knew it was Katie's! Alasdair has it and will be in touch.

D'oh! Speaking of lost & found, I just realized I left my iPod somewhere today, most likely at FiberCamp. It's the industrial-sized version in black, and it's in a grey felt owl case. I'm really attached to that owl, and I need the iPod for therapeutic insulation from my fellow T commuters. Please, please, please tell me a kindly FiberCamper picked it up!

WHOO HOO! Just called the bakery where Alanna and I picked up pastries, and they have the iPod. Little do they know it, but my fellow commuters have had a VERY LUCKY ESCAPE.
