Fiber Festival Demonstrations

Free demonstrations of various fiber arts may be viewed throughout the weekend.  Our demonstrators are generous volunteers who share their knowledge with us and are always happy to answer questions.  The list of demonstrations is listed in the program brochure, as well as on signs at the fairgrounds, so demonstrations may be easily located while at the festival.
