Start Time: 10:00 AM

 Observe local fiber artists as they demonstrate their talents working with natural fibers such as wool, mohair, and alpaca. Visit with them and learn about their craft as they felt, weave, spin, knit, crochet, and create bobbin lace. We will have shepherds here that raise their own flocks and herds of unique breeds of fleece sheep, angora goats, and alpacas. This year we are offering hands-on time with an expert teacher on a spinning wheel with the dyed roving of your choice to experience the art of spinning your own wool yarn. Join us for amazing hand dyed colors and textures. Program runs 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
