The Fiber Festival of New England
November 5 & 6
Saturday, 9am - 5pm
Sunday, 9am - 3pm

Fiber enthusiasts are coming together for the seventh annual Fiber Festival of New England, Nov. 5 & 6 in the Mallary Complex at Eastern States Exposition. The event, co-produced by the Exposition and the New England Sheep and Wool Growers Association, promotes 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 and more will be held both days.

Let's not forget about the Fleece Sale, Fiber Fashion Show, Make It With Wool Competition and Sheep Shearing Demonstrations.

In addition to being an ideal holiday shopping opportunity with handmade items from over 200 vendor booths, 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.
