Being a first year fiber fair I don't think we expected things to run smoothly, but were amazed at a few roadblocks. Fortunately, the folks in our wee community helped make the right things happen for us (namely liability insurance) and all is a go!
So, we are full steam ahead signing up vendors and advertising.
We want to showcase vendors & fiber artists in the Upper Peninsula and Northern Lower Michigan so if you know anyone who fits the bill, send them our way!
A sneak peek at exciting things to view and purchase at the fair include:
Fiber: Shetland roving, Cormo roving, Shetland & Angora roving, English Angora Fiber, Pygora Fiber, Mohair roving, dyed Coopworth roving, and more !
Fiber Animals: English Angora Rabbits, Cormo lambs and maybe a few Shetland sheep (will verify this and update later)
Goods: Handmade baskets, knit goods, hand woven shawls, hand spun yarn, beautiful handmade shawl pins, triangle looms, fabric for rag rug weaving....more to come!
