The Canadian Craft Federation has designated 2015 as the Year of the Craft. We want to celebrate it with all BC and Yukon textile artists and crafters.

Looking to the land, re-using materials and adapting technologies to serve the innovative and creative spirit is what working in textiles has always represented.
