Schedule of Events

More than 150 New England exhibitors will be showcasing their products including clothing, quilts, blankets, rugs, looms, spinning wheels, and more! Workshops will be held both days on topics like felting, spinning, punch needle, Tunisian crochet, and rug hooking.

In addition to being an ideal holiday shopping opportunity with handmade items from over 200 vendor booths, Fiber Festival is a great educational experience for visitors to learn how animals contribute to the fiber industry through live displays of llamas, alpacas, sheep, and rabbits. Additional weekend activities include:
  • Fleece Sale - This sale will be ongoing throughout the Festival and is open to all. Be the first in line to purchase a fleece or find out how to contribute fleeces to the sale.
  • Sheep Shearing - Demos will also take place throughout the weekend.
