Fiber Feel Day
WNC Farmer's Market
June 2, 2018
Meet your local fiber farmer!
Fiber Feel Day is in its 5th year and celebrates the annual harvest of fiber from local farms. While focusing on fleece, mostly newly shorn from sheep, angora goats and rabbits, alpaca and llama, you may also find value added products from yarn to hand sewn bags, and natural dyes. Many vendors also demonstrate in their booths.
There will be skirting, carding, spinning, knitting, and dyeing demonstrations.
Bring the kids; your kids will love the Pygora goat kids.
Do you ever get stuck trying to decide what to weave, knit, dye or felt next? Rev up your design engine with Karen Donde in this fun exercise using pictures cut from magazines or other sources. Bring colorful magazines to cut up, old calendars or printed pictures from a vacation or your garden, whatever you find interesting. I will bring others for you to share. Also bring tape, a notebook or sketch book and something to write with. We’ll sort by various design parameters, and discuss ideas for using your inspirations in your next project.
