While children are going back to school, many of us are thinking about upcoming fiber festivals. As artisans and fiber enthusiasts, these festivals are a great way to find the beautiful fiber products for your winter projects and support our local producers. You can check out upcoming festivals and fairs on our events calendar.
Leading off the season is the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival in Berryville, Virginia on September 24-25. We will also be joining all the east coast fibershed affiliates at the New York State Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck on October 15-16. The last fall show is the Maryland Alpaca Fiber Festival on November 12-13. Chesapeake Fibershed will have a table at all of these events so please stop by and say hello. We’d love to see you.
If you have time to help staff the table at either event, you can sign up here (SVFF) or here (MABA). If you are planning a trip to Rhinebeck and would like to help at the table, send us an email or comment below.
Hope to see you soon!
