Fandom Community

There's so much going on in Winnipeg that appeals to the fannish heart and mind, whether fan clubs or meetup groups, concerts or art jams, science exhibits, and more. Let us know about your group, or an event that you think would appeal to your fellow fans. In the meantime, check out the following: THESE are the people in YOUR neighborhood!

Fan Clubs

STW: Yesterday... Today... and Tomorrow

"Out there... that away." With these words from Captain James T. Kirk, the first of many Star Trek movies ended, and Star Trek Winnipeg was born. Thirty years later, and currently known as STW, the interests of the club have changed and expanded many times. While still fans of Star Trek in all its variation, we're also interested in other science fiction and fantasy realms, such as Lord of the Rings, Wall-E, Big Bang Theory and Lost Girl. Whether it's humans with laser pistols, or robots with swords and magic, we stand by our heroes and cheer them on to victory and adventure. STW has also evolved a taste for our own adventures, including a summer picnic and a winter pot luck, and also helping with other related events such a suite at Keycon and hospitality at C4, plus others as distant as Montreal, Calgary, Los Angles and Glasgow. Everyone is welcome at STW's meetings, held the second Tuesday of each month at 7 pm, at Pendragon Games & Hobbies, 1354 Main Street, Winnipeg, were we plan club projects and discuss the latest in SF and fantasy movies. For more information, email or phone 204-772-5415.

Keycon Needlework Circle and Revolutionary Society

Ever noticed how creative fandom is? Of course you have! And one of the outlets for this creativity is needlework and fibre arts of all sorts! Whether you sew, embroider, knit, crochet, spin, weave, or create any other kind of fibre handwork, this is the group for you. Come join our Facebook group, so when we get to Keycon, we'll be ready to sit down and share projects and ideas. One other fantastic outcome of this kind of gathering is the conversations we share... it's not all gossip, and this ain't your gramma's quilting bee. Or maybe it is - maybe Gramma was a revolutionary too!
