Fiber Fantasy for the Crafty

. March 3, 2014.

Families are invited to come out for a fiber fantasy including wool, linen, cotton, alpaca and more from the plant or animal to the finished product. There will be sheep, goat and alpaca shearing demonstrations and vendors selling used equipment and other items like felted soaps, shoe inserts, llama and alpaca socks, knit mittens and headbands.  Kids love learning about growing and working with natural fibers; creating useful products and just joining with nature. Class themes include hooking a silky flower pin, making an Easter basket, hand painting yarn, silk scarf painting and making a tool basket.
