FiberCamp Boston 2013 is a community-created conference for fabric and fiber craft enthusiasts. Fiber camp sprouts from the idea that everyone has something to share and teach. Share your passion, learn from your peers, and connect with your community!
Participants can come simply to learn, or present, teach, and share smaller, bite-sized ideas and techniques ranging from beginning Fair Isle knitting to quilting 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 session 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 sessions page. Visit the wiki page for latest news about this event.
