The annual Natural Fiber Fair will be virtual this year with online events from Sept. 10 to 12.
This festival focuses on fiber handcrafts such as knitting, weaving, sewing and dyeing, and the use of natural fibers. This year’s virtual festival will feature workshops on Zoom, an online Virtual Vendor Hall and Fiber Circle online gatherings.
The mission of the fiber fair is to educate the community about natural fiber and related sustainable handcrafts by providing hands-on access to materials and information.
Registration is now open for virtual workshops at http://www.naturalfiberfair.com. The lineup of workshops and instructors includes knitting with Harry Wells, fresh indigo dyeing with John Marshall, weaving with Linda Hartshorn, stitchery with April Sproule, Rima Greer teaching sewing and tatting, knitting with Sunni Scrivner and crochet with Kira Dulaney.
The Virtual Vendor Hall will open Sept. 10 and includes a scavenger hunt. On Sept. 12 at 4 pm, there’ll be a Virtual Fiber Circle with an opportunity to talk with other knitters, weavers, spinners and fiber enthusiasts via Zoom. Bring portable projects and join in on the discussions.
Admission to the Virtual Natural Fiber Fair is free for the Virtual Vendor Hall and the Fiber Circle. Workshops will require a fee. For more information, visit http://www.naturalfiberfair.com or call 707-599-2729.
