Pasatiempo - - CONTENTS -

Lose your­self in a col­or­ful sea of hand­made scarves, shawls, hats, purses, and more at the fourth an­nual Hol­i­day Fall Fiber Fi­esta at the Scot­tish Rite Cen­ter (463 Paseo de Per­alta). The event, or­ga­nized by the Es­pañola Val­ley Fiber Arts Cen­ter, is the largest show in Santa Fe ex­clu­sively ded­i­cated to hand­made cre­ations of lo­cal fiber artists. Nearly all of the par­tic­i­pat­ing artists are from North­ern New Mex­ico, and many of them use hand-spun in­dige­nous sheep and buf­falo wool in their work, in keep­ing with EVFAC’s mis­sion of fos­ter­ing and per­pet­u­at­ing re­gional fiber tra­di­tions. EVFAC, lo­cated in Es­pañola and open to the pub­lic as well as mem­bers, was founded in 1995 and of­fers work­shops and classes in ad­di­tion to a full range of fiber-arts sup­plies. (For a small fee, you can walk in off the street and learn to weave on the spot.) The fam­ily-friendly event in Santa Fe in­cludes weav­ing, spin­ning, and knit­ting demon­stra­tions as well as a craft cor­ner where kids can make items to take home and a pop-up café catered by Two Sprouts Farm. The Fiber Fi­esta opens with a pre­view and cock­tail re­cep­tion from 5 to 7 p.m. on Fri­day, Nov. 18; ad­mis­sion to that event is $10. On Satur­day, Nov. 19, and Sun­day, Nov. 20, ad­mis­sion is free from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.evfac.org. — Jen­nifer Levin
