Annual R&M Yarns Fiber Education Festival

 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 craft.
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 and other fiber animals exhibited
 Spinning
Dyeing Demonstration & Hand-Dyed Yarns for Sale

Different types of Weaving including Back Strap
Wet Felting
 Knitting & Crochet

Antique Embroidery Machine & Demo

Hands-on activities for children; they might get to use a Kool-Aid filled squirt gun to paint a wool warp!  Lots of Fun!

Past Kool-Aid dyed wool on display in the form of woven rugs.

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


If you have a fiber technique you'd like to demonstrate or animals to showcase, please call the Store... 423.961.0690.
