For those of you FIBERHOLICS interested in attending the festival, the committee also adjusted the hours based on vendor feedback. We will move up the start time to 10am on Saturday & Sunday and finish at 5pm both days.
We'll need to get the application & times updated on the festival web-site!
Here's a picture from the 2008 Waynesburg Sheep & Fiber Festival to get everyone in the mood!
Look at the eager border collie in the foreground .... was he part of the sheep herding demo?
Put this festival on your calendar if you knit, spin, felt, or crochet. If you're a yarn shop owner, here's a chance to add some beautiful local fiber and handmade yarns to your inventory. We'll have fleeces, prepared fiber, and yarn from various breeds of sheep as well as alpaca, mohair, angora, & cashmere.
The festival is also a source for local pottery, handmade baskets, local wines, and handcrafted soaps.
