Thanks to all who visited and joined us for this event! It was a remarkable turnout in a venue that really worked for us. The Spinners, Weavers, Embroiderers and Knitters came together to share with all of our guests our enthusiasm for these fiber arts. Demonstrations, classes, merchants and the silent auction were available as well as our Knit Doctors and social area for sitting and knitting. This couldn’t have happened without the valuable efforts of our volunteers who joined to make this the best event ever! Thanks especially to all those who made this a success for all of us!
Keep your eye on this page for future plans!
