  • Garments shown in the Fashion Show will be on display in the Fashion Show Gallery.

Try Some Hands On Activites

New this year will be the “Make and Take It” arena. Short drop-in sessions will be scheduled on Saturday and Sunday. These will be hands-on teaching sessions where you can try a new fiber skill and take your project home with you. More on the Make It and Take It page.

There will also be a Spinning Corral, in the Vendor Hall, an area dedicated to the ancient craft of spinning.

Come and try out the wheels and spindles that will be there for practice, from the traditional to the contemporary. You may have a new wheel in your future and this will be the place to get started looking. One is never enough for a true spinner.

We will also have plenty of chairs if you want to bring your own wheel or spindle and sit, rest and spin for awhile. A great way to meet other spinners and talk to those interested in learning.

Having problems with your own wheel? Will Taylor, spinning wheel doctor extraordinaire, will also be there, off and on, throughout Saturday and Sunday. He will be happy to give you some tips.
