so much more than just fiber to be discovered here!

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!

If you'd like to learn more about fiber, check out the new knitting club that volunteers Jeanie Prentice and Beth Grabow have started in West Branch. It meets every other Thursday at the Tanger Outlet Mall Lounge from 7 pm to 9 pm.

Bring your knitting/crochet/spinning project for a fun and relaxing evening with other crafters. We are open to all ages and abilities. Beginners are welcome - we can teach you to knit. Contact us for a supply list.

For more information, email Elizabeth at nmlwf@yahoo.com or phone Jeanie, 989 345 2434.
