I am delighted to be a vendor at the 24th Annual Finger Lakes Fiber Festival. The Festival educates the public about fiber and its sources, promotes small farms, supports fiber artists and fiber-related businesses, and provides a venue for the public to interact with the fiber arts world. By sharing skills and knowledge with the public through demonstrations and workshops, the Finger Lakes Fiber Festival is sowing the seeds for future generations of fiber artists and craftspeople. The festival features great vendors, with everything you need for fiber arts: raw fleece, roving, spinning supplies, needle felting supplies, dyes, yarns, items needed to knit, crochet, weave—and things you won’t know you need until you see them—not to mention unique, one-of-a-kind, handmade finished items!
I am please to be a first-time vendor at the 30th Annual Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival in Tunbridge, Vermont. The Festival Marketplace features over 70 vendors offering fleece and yarn, handspinning and fibercrafting equipment and supplies, handcrafted wool items, small ruminant equipment and supplies, fencing materials and local meat and cheese.
I am excited once again to participate in a great local fiber festival. I'll have lots of unique shawl pins, fibulas and penannular brooches so you can secure those gorgeous handmade sweaters, shawls and scarves.
The Kings County Fiber Festival embraces both fiber artists and the resource providers that make their work possible. Hosted on the grounds of the Old Stone House of Brooklyn – originally built in 1699 as the Vechte family farm – the Kings County Fiber Festival includes crocheters, dyers, felters, knitters, quilters, spinners, and weavers, as well as artists creating design works that incorporate fiber as an integral material. The Festival's goal is to raise awareness of both historic and contemporary approaches to the fiber arts.
I am excited to be a vendor at the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival, one of the largest annual gatherings of fiber-arts enthusiasts in the US. The festival was first held in 1972. It is attended by knitters, crocheters, handspinners, and growers of natural-fiber-producing livestock. The livestock includes sheep, goats, angora rabbits, llamas, musk oxen and alpacas. It also includes vendors of the materials and tools associated with each. In addition to the myriad vendors and demonstrations of fiber arts activities, the festival features several livestock competitions, sheepdog trials and a sheep to shawl contest.
Once you've purchased all the yarn you can carry, stop by my booth for the accessories you'll need, including penannular brooches, fibulas/safety pins, shawl pins, cable needles, stitch markers and buttons.
