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.

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.
