It is hard to believe that we are having our fifth annual Ewe-per Fiber Fair, but the adage that time flies when you are having fun is apparently true!
Please join us on Saturday July 11th from 10-3 at the Three Lakes Academy on Main Street Curtis in Michigan's beautiful eastern Upper Peninsula! We are a small fiber fair with a big heart, and the lovely town of Curtis is hopping with activity this time of year.
Local vendors will be selling handspun yarn, woven rugs, handwoven bags and purses, knit items, wool roving, exotic luxury fiber for spinning and felting and other knitting, felting, spinning and weaving supplies. Artisans and vendors will be on site offering free demonstrations and learning events. In addition, at 11:00 and 1:00 there will be a Children's project- Wet felting a bar of soap.
Lodging and meals are available in the town of Curtis and surrounding area and there is a playground on site for the kids.
