As many probably already know, we decided to cancel our live Fibre Market on October 17. With Covid numbers rising and the provincial government asking folks not to travel from their homes areas, we felt that it was the most responsible decision to make. The silver lining is that we *KNEW* we would have folks join us from far and wide *smile* so it was our success that influenced our decision, which in a way is kind of awesome!
So, instead of a live market, we have moved online.
WAIT! Before you shrug, “Oh yet another online, can’t-squish-the-yarn event”, let us tell you a bit about what we’re doing 🙂
Rather than simply posting about each vendor in Spotlight posts (which we have done, and will do), we are also doing some other fun things! We will be peppering both our Instagram and Facebook accounts with posts and live streams throughout the day.
1) We are letting some of our vendors take over our Instagram account throughout the day so you are likely to see a lot of live feeds popping up as they take turns live streaming and sharing their products/farm/animals/process with you!
2) One of our organizers will be traveling to a few local farms to live stream on Facebook from there with the farmers to discuss what they do and what products they offer!
We are still scheduling things but it is slowly coming together and should be a fun day, so please pop online throughout the day on Saturday. Say hi to our vendors, ask them questions and enjoy the sharing!
