The Festival focuses on the “sheep to shawl” concept, and visitors will see the transformation of fleece into finished goods and art pieces. We will offer a sheep shearing demonstrations on Saturday. The Third Annual Fashion Show, at noon on Saturday, will offer an opportunity for vendors, instructors, and participants to model their artistic creations.

Approximately 40 vendors will offer demonstrations in addition to selling supplies, tools, hand-spun and hand-dyed yarn, and finished goods. The Liles Organic Farm and Saddle Brook Farm will show off their prized ‘fiber on the hoof’ including llamas, sheep, goats and angora rabbits

Classes include fiber preparation, spinning, dyeing, felting, weaving on different types of looms, tapestry, knitting, and embellishments. Join us to learn unique techniques, complete hands-on projects, and have fun.
