This is a one day fiber festival to shop for handmade, local items and meet the artists. We have finished wearable pieces as well as the materials and tools to make your own. Locally spun fibers in wool, mohair, silk, llama and alpaca. Whole fleeces as well as hand spun and mill spun yarns. Fiber mill owner will be available to talk about processing your fiber. Felt art pieces, wearable felt and needle felting kits. Also artists who work with wood, pottery and recycled tin. Morning usually finds a llama onsite as well. Llama sweaters are very warm when worn indoors, so our friend doesn't stay too long. This is our 7th year! Our event celebrates those that teach and work in our schools, but we welcome everyone to attend.
