9am to 4pm Spencer Peirce Little Farm 5 Little's Lane Newbury, Massachusetts
$6 entrance fee ($4 children) to the property

Come and enjoy a day-long exploration of the fiber arts. Shop the vendors (it just so happens that is Massachusetts' annual tax holiday), 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 you choice.

Bring your unwanted/unneeded notions to donate to the Farm's fiber-arts programs: there will be a bin at the admission desk to drop your buttons, zippers, ribbon, thread, needles, do-dads and whatchamacallits. The farm is also on the lookout for a spare ballwinder if you have one.

Lunch will be available for purchase and we are pleased to report that Ipswich Ale will be vending beers and soda again! Lunch selections will be:
  • Ratatuille Veggie Wrap - eggplants, tomato, squash, peppers, seasoned with extra virgin olive oil, thyme, salt
  • Caprese Panino -Ciabatta bread, fresh mozzarella, sweet tomatoes, fresh basil, balsamic vinaigrette
  • Balsamic Berry and Turkey Sandwich - Turkey Breast, cranberries, mayonnaise, balsamic vinegar, green onions, lettuce
Sides will include assorted chips, popcorn and homemade cookies. We will also have fresh brewed coffee and tea, both hot and iced. That went over really well last year.

Full sandwich lunch meal $11 and included 2 sides and beverage.

There will be many vendors selling spinning and weaving equipment, spinning fiber in all forms. See the vendor list in the sidebar for detail- subject to change for 2013, keep checking back for updates.
