Oct. 2016 Fall Fiber Festival

Attend the Fall Fiber Weekend being hosted by the Third Star Fibre Artist Guild the weekend of October 22-23 in Woodstown, NJ. Attached is a brochure about the weekend. Please share the brochure with your guild members.

We will have two 2-day workshops.

  • One is "Weave a Twill Gamp with Color-and-Weave Effects" taught by Karen Donde.
  • The other workshop we are calling "Spinning 3-in-1" taught by Beth Smith. Participants with actually participate in 3 spinning classes over the two days including: "Who's the Fairest of them all: the Princess Sheep Study," "Woolen vs. Worsted Cage Match," and "Going Steady." Full descriptions of all the workshops are in the brochure.

Besides the workshops, we will be having an anniversary dinner and open house on Saturday evening. There is an additional cost for the dinner and during the open house, participants can make a marbleized silk scarf for $35. Guild members will also be displaying items they have made.

This weekend event is funded in part through a grant from the Mid-Atlantic Fiber Association. http://mafafiber.org/
