Fiber Arts Drop Ins & Demos


Drop In & Spin

One of the Festival’s most popular activities over the years has been the Drop in & Spin. We have been very lucky to find talented handspinners who are willing to volunteer their time to help others learn to spin, improve their technique or try out a different spinning wheel.

Knit Along

Thank you to the volunteers at our Drop In & Knit.  Please stop by to learn knitting basics or a new technique.

Weaving Demonstrations

Visit Floral Hall and enjoy weaving demonstrations by the talented members of the Vermont Weavers Guild.

Yarn & Fiber Tasting

We introduced the Yarn & Fiber Tasting at the 2014 Festival and it proved to be a hit. Many of our vendors supply samples of their yarns and handspinning fibers.

This activity takes place in Floral Hall. The Fiber Tasting samples will be located with the Drop in & Spin to allow for the use of spinning wheels under the supervision of our volunteer spinners. The Yarn Tasting will be located with the Drop In & Knit.
