Kitchissippi United Church, 630 Island Park Drive, Ottawa, Ontario

Out of the Box Fibre Artists and the Kitchissippi United Church invite you to a show and sale of Fibre and mixed media art on Friday and Saturday in the church hall. Our membership included a wide range of fibre artists, many of whom belong to area guilds as well. At last year’s show, 44 artists exhibited artworks such as art quilts, mixed media, framed works, felting, wearables, embroidery, dolls, beadwork, paper compositions and more. The depth, quality, and originality of the work is truly inspiring!
As well, an extensive Sales area gives visitors an opportunity to purchase a variety of unique items including small framed artwork, wearables such as scarves, hats, and bags, jewelry, cards, handmade books, and an array of felting, stitchery, knitting and crochet and mixed media pieces.
A delicious high tea will be served on Saturday, April 9 by volunteers from Kitchissippi United Church. Over the last 6 years, this partnership of Art and Tea has raised close to $20,000 for the Stephen Lewis Foundations. Since 2003, the Stephen Lewis Foundation has worked with community-level organizations to provide care and support to women, orphaned children, grandmothers and people living in the 15 African countries hardest hit by the global HIV & AIDS pandemic. The Foundation’s work is supported by over 100,000 Canadians through individual donations, tribute gifts. Also, through the ‘Grandmothers to Grandmothers’ Campaign, over 240 Canadian Grandmother Groups provide African grandmothers with food, health care, and essential needs for their grandchildren.

If you are located outside of Ottawa, this show calls for a ‘road trip’ for sure!
