Fibercamp sprouts from  the fact that everyone has something to share and teach. Connect with the community by sharing your passion.

Participants present, teach and share smaller bite-sized ideas and techniques ranging from beginning fair isle 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 are responsible to be a part of the conversation.
