Viv Fulton was a prime mover behind the CNY Fiber Arts Festival from its earliest days in Bouckville. She was totally committed to its mission and handled dozens of thankless tasks on the festival committee. We miss her every day!
Viv was a talented weaver, always eager to try new techniques and to share her knowledge. In her memory, an annual hand weaving competition was established in 2019. Different categories are established for the competition each year, with cash prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category. Entries must be woven using only natural fibers.
Why not start thinking now about a new handwoven creation?
