Fiber enthusiasts are coming together for the annual Fiber Festival of New England to 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 and more will be held both days.

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.

Activities include:

A Fleece Sale will be ongoing throughout the Festival and is open to all. Be the first in line to purchase a fleece. Those interested in contributing fleeces should send fleeces to arrive on or before Friday, Nov. 2, or bring them to the Mallary Complex, by Nov. 2, 9am to 8pm. Please include the date shorn, breed of animal and producer information.
Sheep Shearing demos will also take place throughout the weekend.
