so much more than just fiber to be discovered here!

New in 2013:

If you followed the balloons to a vendor demo during NML&WF 2013, you were in for a treat! Free demonstrations were given on antique baskets, felting flowers, drop spinning, knitting with mohair yarns, and much more. What a great way to learn new fiber skills! We'll be glad to offer even more demos next year.

They just don't come any friendlier than this! There's always someone around to give advice, demonstrate techniques, or just sit and chat for a while about fiber - our favorite!

Be sure to let us know if you'd be interested in joining our family as a volunteer to help before, during, or after the festival. Many hands make light work - not to mention loads of fun!

Speaking of volunteers, we hope you enjoy the many wonderful pictures from our 2009 to 2012 festivals, taken by roving photographer Teri Dougherty. She has captured the essence of our festival - fun, fiber, and friends!
