Our annual festival showcases the work of fiber farmers and artists. Over 100 vendor booths, under cover, feature handmade products such as yarn, roving, clothing, felted items, woven items, other works of art, and fiber art supplies. A children’s tent offers free crafts, games, and educational activities for our young visitors. Friendly farm animals are on display throughout the festival. Always popular is the demonstration of sheep shearing, which can be viewed on both days of the festival. Spinning guild members offer demonstrations and host a Wheel Corral, where visitors can try spinning on different types of wheels. Food vendors sell delicious treats, and live music enhances the festival atmosphere.
Each year, CNY Fiber festival focuses on one aspect of the fiber arts. This year our focus is dyeing. Guest artists will share information and techniques for dyeing various types of fiber. More information on our guest speakers can be found here.
Other demonstrations are provided by experts at various times throughout the festival and workshops on the fiber arts are available. A list of this year’s workshops can be found here. Register now to be sure of a place in a class!
An annual sale is held at the festival each year that features fleece and raw fiber from animals raised in our area. The fleece and fiber sale will be held both days of the festival.
