Fall craft fairs and festivals signal the time for renewed passion and exploration for knitters, weavers, spinners, and crochet artists. Arts and craft fairs present optimum opportunities for discovering new techniques, great new yarns, indie dyers, and meeting friends who share the same infectious enthusiasm for handmade. Craft fairs and fiber festivals abound all over New England in the autumn, Rhinebeck in New York State being the largest with link below. Here are just a few scheduled for October 2011 where you can explore, learn, buy handmade and support local crafters.
Why buy handmade?
New England’s premier fiber festival event, the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival at Rhinebeck, NY, will be held October 15th and 16th.
And don’t forget Channing Church’s Arts and Craft Fair on Oct 22 in Newport, RI. Knitnscribble will be there!
Looking ahead, mark your calendars for the 2nd Annual New England Fiber Fest in West Springfield, MA, Nov 5 and 6, 2011.
