Fiber Camp 2016
FiberCamp Boston 2016 (March 11-13) is our annual urban retreat for fabric and fiber craft enthusiasts, with an emphasis on skill building, skill sharing, and community. FiberCamp kicks off with a Friday night speaker and continues with a weekend of informal mini-classes on smaller, bite-sized ideas and techniques ranging from Fair Isle knitting to quilting to TinkerToy swifts and beyond. In past years, special features have included fashion shows, dyeing workshops, swag handouts, joint art projects, raffle-paloozas, special classes by fiber superstars, and more!
Common Cod Fiber Guild
The mission of the Common Cod Fiber Guild is to promote fiber activities in the Boston area, as well as to promote local yarn stores, fiber artists, and fiber producers. Every odd-numbered month from September through July, the Guild brings in speakers. These Guild meetings are on Fridays at 7PM. We also offer gatherings like FiberCamp Weekend for crafters of all levels as well as more informal meetups, potlucks, and field trips.
Guild Meetings and Workshops

Guild Meetings are at 7PM on the 2nd Friday of odd-numbered months — September, November, January, March, May, and July — at MIT’s Stata Center. Most speakers from the guild meetings also teach workshops that weekend on anything fiber-related, from spinning to dyeing. It’s a great way to learn a skill from the experts themselves.

Crafty Sundays and Informal Meetups

Crafty Sundays are at 2PM on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month in the lobby of MIT’s Tang Center. Come hang out and craft, get inspiration, or take advantage of “drop-in crafty office hours”: Get help if you’re stuck with a project, learn to spin, troubleshoot sewing machine problems, etc. We also host many informal events and outings, including holiday parties, trips to the ICA, knitting at Fanueil Hall.
