The Surrey Museum is gearing up to celebrate all things fibre.

The Fibre Arts and Crafts Festival – set for 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 13 – is a free, all ages event featuring demonstrations, displays, live harp music and crafts for both children and adults.

Angora bunnies and Surrey’s heritage re-enactment troupe, The Re-enactors, are also planned to be part of the fun.

Highlights are to include a finger weaving exploration with Mechtild Morin; a visit with fashion historian Ivan Sayers, who will display his antique lace collection; a second lace display courtesy of the Lace Makers Guild; Samoyed dog hair spinning with Philippa Joy; and a demonstration from PAWS, the Langley Weavers and Spinners Guild, the West Coast Knitters Guild and the Fraser Valley Knitters Guild.

The Surrey Museum is located at 17710 56A Ave.
