FiberCamp Series: Food, Glorious Food
February 17, 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.

Let’s talk food:

Lunch is an on your own affair at FiberCamp; it is one of the many ways we can keep FiberCamp affordable for all the participants. There is refrigerator space for folks that like to bring their own.  We will also have an area of pot luck food that anyone contribute to or eat (please clearly label your ingredients when bringing a dish).   Sign up here.   The potluck area will be available all weekend and will include hot water for (very good, I swear) instant coffee*, teas and fixings.

Common Cod is lucky to get to hold FiberCamp at the Tang Center a great area of Cambridge that has lots of food choices within walking distance of FiberCamp.
