R&M Yarns will have a booth at this event with several choices of yarns.  We'd love to see you!

Phyllis will also be teaching two beginning weaving workshops on Saturday, April 13th., one at 9:30-11:30 and another from 1:30-3:30.  Students will weave one cotton towel from 100% cotton on a pre-warped loom.  Students will have a choice of weft yarns.  All equipment and yarns are furnished.  

The 2-hour class cost is $56 (includes yarn).  Registration is required and must be completed through the SMFAF website (scroll to bottom).


If you are attending the Festival and wish R&M to bring ordered yarns to you, let us know.  We'll be happy to pack them to save you shipping costs!

 The Saturday before Mother's Day!
Held on the front lawn of R&M Yarns, 8510 Hwy. 60, Georgetown, TN 37336

Saturday, May 11, 2019

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!

 

Additional Information

 Vendors are by "invitation only"--all vendors must demonstrate their particular artist abilities.
Our goal is to be primarily an "educational" fiber festival showcasing as many
different techniques as possible.
Demonstrators will also be offering animals and their handmade finished products for sale.

Demonstrations, Animals & Activities Planned:

Sheep Shearing
Sheep & Alpaca animals
 Spinning
Dyeing Fiber
Different types of Weaving
Felting
 Knitting & Crochet
Circular Machine Knitting
Hand-Turned Wooden Crochet Hook Handles & Knitting Needles

Hands-on activities for children with items to take home!

Thank you to the many vendors and demonstrators who have agreed to come and share
their particular skills....R&M Yarns
