Friends of Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park
Overmountain Weavers Guild Fibers Show and Sale
 
 

Saturday, March 18, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Have you ever watched the skillful hands of an expert spinner and marveled at how the fiber flowed so swiftly through those fingers to become thread?  Has a weaver ever mesmerized you by the rhythmic passing of the shuttle back and forth, back and forth, creating beautiful cloth? 

Have you ever wanted to experience spinning or weaving for yourself?  Maybe you need some tips on knitting or crocheting? Perhaps you want to buy some beautiful yarn.

If so, come to the Fiber Fair at Sycamore Shoals State Park in Elizabethton, TN. and meet these amazing artisans. 

Guild members will be on hand all day to answer questions or provide helpful hints for all fiber lovers. Educational exhibits will show native dyes and fiber made from native plants. Demonstrations will be given on floor looms and inkle looms, and on drop spindling and spinning on a wheel.

A wide assortment of vendors will offer hand-made items including scarves, placemats, table runners, quilts, mittens, jewelry and more. Fleeces, yarn and equipment will also be available.

Live alpacas and llamas will be on display, door prizes will be awarded, and delicious food and drink will be available for purchase.  Visitors will be able to try their hand at weaving or spinning under the helpful guidance of Guild members.

Fiber Fair is a wonderful, free event for the entire family.  Come and join the OverMountain Weavers for a fun, educational day.
