The Fiber Festival of New England will be held November 3rd and 4th in the Mallory Complex at the Eastern States Exposition. In this event, fiber enthusiasts promote the use of wool and other natural fibers and related products to the general public.
More than 150 New England exhibitors will be showcasing their products including clothing, quilts, blankets, rugs, looms, spinning wheels and more. Workshops on felting, spinning, punch needle, Tunisian crochet, rug hooking, knitting and more will be held on both days.
In addition to being an ideal holiday shopping opportunity with handmade items, Fiber Festival is a great educational experience for visitors to learn how animals contribute to the fiber industry through live displays of llamas, alpacas, sheep and rabbits.
Sheep shearing demos will take place throughout the weekend. Admission to the Fiber Festival of New England is $7 for adults and free for children 12 and under.
