    This month we welcome local fashion designer and fibreshed hero Peggy Sue Deaven Smiltnieks, creative director of The Peggy Sue Collection. After winning the Toronto Fashion Incubator in 2016, Peggy Sue has been growing her brand while still remaining true to her core values: that fashion should be connected, conscious and regenerative. The collection is fully traceable, designed to accentuate the best of the North American Fiber Industry and built to sustain lifetimes of wear.

IN THE COMMUNITY

The Guild generally participates in the following events each year where we demonstrate fibre processing, spinning and weaving to the public. These are subject to confirmation.

FALL FESTIVALS
See the Guild in action on the second weekend in September at the Riverdale Farm Fall Festival, and at the Cabbagetown Festival too!

FAMILY DAY
Riverdale Farm is a great place to spend Family Day, with lots of fun activities taking place, including weaving and spinning that the whole family can enjoy.

SHEEP CELEBRATION
Riverdale Farm opens its doors with the farm’s popular spring festival where Guild members use the fleece shorn from the farm sheep to demonstrate the old skills needed to make yarn, dye it and weave it into cloth. Come and see sheep shearing, basic wool preparation, spinning and weaving in action!
