Welcome to the 8th annual Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival!
Fiber: it's more than just a breakfast cereal or wool from sheep! Come celebrate the many facets of fiber in 2013. The festival this year is filled with opportunities and events focusing on all aspects of fiber and more!
More than than just yarn, our vendors offer various raw and finished fibers, the animals they come from, buttons to spinning and weaving equiptment, rugs and purses to hats and sweaters, jewelry, art, pottery and more!
You can even try some local wines, fresh cider and pie - something for everyone!
Our events, classes and vendors are increasing from now until festival time. Keep checking back often to see what has been added!
Many various animals produce fiber that can be used for clothing, felting and other types of textiles. Visit with various breeds both at vendor booths and in our educational Breed Exhibit. If you would like your animals to participate, look for more details in the Breed Exhibit section of the Events page.
