Last year we thoroughly enjoyed participating in the Schafer Meadows Fiber Arts Festival for the first time and found it is our absolute favorite event. With our hefty homestead work load this year, we knew a single selling event would be all we had time for. The fantastic, friendly, family atmosphere and plethora of learning opportunities made this event the obvious choice.
If you'd like to take a family field trip to learn a number of old skills, see a variety of unique fibers and creations, and snuggle some fuzzy animals it is well worth the drive! This year they've expanded to inc1ude a local alpaca group and their wares. I whole-heartedly encourage all those interested in spinning, felting, knitting and crochet to attend several events like this. You can typically purchase your spinning supplies at a significantly reduced cost by buying USED! The price point of even the most basic of brand new wooden wheels is around $500; whereas a gently used edition can start around $150! We will have a used, original Ashford Traditional (kit version) available to purchase, as well as a beautiful Ertoel "Roberta" electric wheel.

He has been enjoying several wood working projects and wanted to make special pieces for this event, including his popular wood buttons.
Lil' Miss has been carding more of her beautiful fiber batts with fall flare so you can create in even more color schemes!
Tech, with his Notably Notched creations, is offering some of his carvings that took blue ribbons at the fair, for anyone who may be looking for the perfect enhancement to their craft room or a unique gift!
All of this means you have plenty of amazing options for beautiful, hand-made creations! Everyone is contributing and we look forward to being able to see so many new and known faces to chat and share fiber related fun!
We hope to see you there!
