Fibres West 2010

Today I went to Fibres West. Part of Metro Vancouver (is that what they're calling the Greater Vancouver Regional District these days?) it was still a 45 minute drive from the eastern edge of Burnaby. At least there was free parking at the end of it. 8) Friday, March 26th (10-8) Saturday, March 27th (10-5), 2010 AgRec Building Abbotsford Exhibition Park Grounds, 32470 Haida Drive, Abbotsford, BC http://www.fibreswest.com/ Now, there used to be a show called Fibrefest International that was held close to the same place (the Tradex, I think) and apparently there still will be (see http://www.mail-archive.com/fibernet@yahoogroups.com/msg09426.html) I would point you at their website, but it looks like someone missed the domain name renewal and squatters got it. I thought that the two shows were related, maybe run by the same people, but now I'm not sure anymore. Certainly the same subject matter is being covered, although no live animals at this one to the disappointment of the offspring. Read more

No. *a dark cloud of disgruntlement hangs over my head*) In any case, today I went to the Canadian Bead Oasis Show, Vancouver 2010 MARCH 26-28 2010 Empire Landmark Hotel Lower Level, Coal Harbour Room 1400 Robson St. Vancouver BC Canada SHOW HOURS Friday noon - 8pm Saturday 10am - 6pm Sunday 11am - 5pm http://www.oasisshows.com/Vancouver/2010/ Went Friday noon-ish.
