Fiber Feel Day
WNC Farmer's Market
May 11, 2019
Meet your local fiber farmer!
Fiber and textile art enthusiasts can plunge their hands into luscious locally raised alpaca, sheep or mohair fleeces; fondle yarns and products produced from them; and learn how to incorporate more local fibers into your knitting, spinning, weaving, felting or crocheting projects. The annual fiber tailgate market has expanded with more vendors and larger space this year. It is presented by Local Cloth Inc. will feature
Locally raised raw fleeces
Roving, spun and dyed yarn
Finished textile products
Demonstrations in fiber preparation, weaving, spinning and knitting will be going on all day
So come meet your local Fiber Farmer and the Artisans that create beautiful works from the raw fiber.
This event is designed to educate local fiber artisans and hobbyists, allow them to purchase local animal fibers and provide local resources for turning that fleece into the roving, yarn or cloth they need.
Thank you to WNC Communities for being the Sponsor of Fiber Feel Day.
