The Fifth Annual Oxford Fiber Arts Festival will be held at the Oxford Powerhouse from Friday, January 30 – Sunday, February 1, 2015. In its short history the event has become “go to” winter in Oxford. Classes are offered for the novice to the most experienced artisan. No knowledge of fiber is necessary to enjoy this wonderful community event.
On Saturday, the Festival features live animals including llama, sheep and goats. If you are very lucky you might be kissed by a llama. There also are events that allow children to create real art with fiber.
The Festival is hosted by the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council and organized by Knit1 Oxford. We hope you will come all three days!!!
To register for any class you must call or stop by Knit1.
See you at the Festival!
Patsy and Lynn

We're spring cleaning the Powerhouse to help us prepare for a site visit from ArtPlace America! We're one of 90 finalists nationwide in their 2015 National Grants Program. Receiving a grant from this program would be a major opportunity for the Arts Council to expand its impact on Oxford and the surrounding area, and we want to put our best foot forward by presenting a very clean and organized building!
We'll be scrubbing, sweeping, cleaning out and organizing. Please wear old, comfortable clothing and shoes. We're going to be working from 9 to 4, and we'd like to ask volunteers to sign up for at least two hours. Lunch will be provided. We'll have three shifts: 9 to 11, 11 to 2, and 2 to 4. The middle shift is a little longer since it will include lunch.

Join us for Songwriters on the Road on Friday, Feb 6, 2015 at 7 pm!
Featuring Byron Hill and Wil Nance, Songwriters on the e Road is a night with the hitmakers! Best described as a two-writer, Bluebird Cafe style guitar pull, it's a very entertaining alternative to the usual band or singer/songwriter performance. The audience may not immediately know the names or faces of some of these performers, but they will know their catalog of megahits and will get to learn the stories behind the songs!
