Come and enjoy a day-long exploration of the fiber arts. Shop the vendors, learn a new skill, bring your knitting, your spinning wheel or your sock machine and enjoy a day of community with your fellow fiber enthusiasts.  This is a BYOC (bring your own chair) event, so please remember to bring portable seating of your choice.

Josette McWilliams of Enchanted Knoll will be teaching 2 workshops this year. In Going Batty you will learn how to create batts on a drum carder. In Spinning Batty you will learn how to spin batts. 

Josette will also have a selection of batts available for sale during and after her classes.

There will be many vendors selling spinning and weaving equipment, spinning fiber in all forms. See the vendor list in the sidebar for details and keep checking back for updates.
