R&M Fiber Festival



2017
R&M Yarns Fiber Art Education Festival
Saturday, May 13th

Mother's Day Weekend
Held on the front lawn of R&M Yarns
(We've moved the date into the month of May to avoid heavy rain showers in April!)

10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Free Admission


Not your typical Festival...our vendors are asked to "educate" the public
on fiber, fiber techniques and fiber animals.

Great opportunity for children to get "up close & personal"
with fiber and fiber animals.  We're hoping for sheep shearing again this year!

            If you have fiber animals or a fiber technique that you would like to share with the public,
call Phyllis at R&M Yarns and ask about participating in this event.  This is an "invitation-only" event.      




Festival Information
