Imbolc — Fellow Fiber Artists, take time to celebrate this day!

Imbolc: Celtic mid-winter celebration involving candles and purification; and relating to the etymology of the word “imbolc” or “imbolg,” in agrarian communities, marking the onset of lactation in ewes, and celebrating the mid-winter point, the coming of spring!

  Light candles, look up at the sky, reconnect with the cycles of the seasons; celebrate deep winter and rebirth.  Most of all: take time to renew your spirit and celebrate life.  As a fiber artist, I think that a time set aside to celebrate the onset of lactation in ewes makes such good sense!
