Fairbanks Fiber Festival

October 15, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Explore the world of fiber in Fairbanks! Meet local fiber farmers and artisans and learn all about fiber production through hands-on demonstrations in spinning, weaving, drop spindle, wet felting, dyeing, livestock nutrition, and more!  Local vendors will be selling fiber in all stages, from fleece to finished product.  All ages are welcome; kids will love the Book Nook, sponsored by Gulliver’s Books.
