Back in Time - Fiber Fest 2014

Fremont Fiber Arts Guild Fiber Fest
Riverton, WY
Fiber Fest 2014 was a day, filled with wonderful fiber goodness, conversation, and fellowship. Fremont Fiber Arts Guild members gathered Friday afternoon to set up tables and assist vendors with their displays for the biannual Fiber Fest to be held the next day.

Five vendors displayed yarn, notions, roving, and other fiber goodies, and on Saturday six guild members demonstrated their crafts: wheel spinning, drop spindle, twining, crocheting, knitting, cinch making. Guild members donated items for several Silent Auction tables.

In addition to giving demonstrations, guild members worked with those who had some prior knowledge or a particular craft but were struggling with a concept or a project.

Several men attended the event and seemed to enjoy trying the drop
spindle and rug twining as well as observing the wheel spinning demos.
Even though a specific date has not been determined, Fiber Fest will be held again in 2016.
