Join us at the Fibreshed tent when we once again take part in the Botanical Garden’s Harvest Festival, a lovely way to celebrate the end of summer and the bounty that the garden provides.
As the Fall Fair is the day after the last Saturday of the month, when we would normally have a LearnAlong, we have decided to combine the two events this year and not have the LearnAlong on the Saturday. Instead we will meet at the Botanical Garden on Sunday from 11:00 to 3:00.
At the Fall Fair, Fibreshed will be focusing on creating dye colours with plants from the garden. Of course there will be a nice variety of local fleece to experiment dyeing with. If you would like to do more dyeing at home, Fibreshed will have some beautiful, freshly processed rovings and batts for sale.
Bring your spinning, needle felting, knitting, or other Fibreshed project to work on, as well as a chair.
This is also a time to promote your Fibreshed fibre, so bring that along too with information about your farm to share with the public.
Save the date and mark your calendars now!
