Local Focal Point: fleurdefibre (10 photos)

Sunday, December 02, 2012   by: Donna Hopper

In an effort to encourage Sault consumers to support the area's increasing and creative arts scene, hopes our readers will consider shopping local this holiday season.

From now until Christmas, we will be showcasing the work of local artists and craftspeople with this new weekly feature.

This week's feature highlights the work of fleurdefibre and Mireille Gagnon Moes.


Mireille Gagnon Moes creates beautiful and bright original firbre and textile pieces using a variety of techniques.
To see a gallery of her creations, please click here.

Her work is currently available at Moose Sweats in Richard's Landing on St. Joseph Island from now until the end of December.

Fleurdefibre can also be found at the Tippy Canoe Gallery in Bruce Mines, and the Naturally Nice Gallery located at Kent's Corners, St Joseph Island (beside Mom's Restaurant).

You can view images of Mireille's work, both old and new, on Flickr

About fleurdefibre

Inspired by her surroundings on St. Joseph Island, Mireille dyes unique colour interpretations on warm, luxurious, long lasting and easy care mohair socks.

When not dyeing mohair socks, she also enjoys creating original works combining varied techniques such as hand weaving, hand spinning, felting, spool knitting, crochet, knitting and braiding.
