For 2016, Carolina FiberFest returns to the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, NC. Drawing fiber enthusiasts from the surrounding area and beyond, this family-friendly event features classes, free demonstrations, and shopping for yarn, ready-to-spin fiber, patterns, tools, accessories, and specialty items.
“Carolina FiberFest is a wonderful opportunity to learn heritage craft skills and to connect with those who are passionate about fiber arts,” says Carolyn Beasley, one of the event founders. “It’s exciting to see the heightened popularity of handmade goods. Kids to teens to adults enjoy spinning, knitting, crocheting, weaving, felting and other activities.”
