Flock to the Spring Fiber Expo that is taking place March 22 & 23, 2014 in Ann Arbor. In recent years there has been a resurgence in interest in the fiber arts. The sustainable and green movement has brought a new life to the age old crafts of felting, knitting, spinning and other crafts using natural fibers.
The economy has forced people to look towards entertainment at home, so the craft industry has been flourishing. One problem for those interested in these natural fiber arts is where to find materials for these crafts? Most local chain craft stores offer little in the way of natural products to satisfy the needs of fiber crafters.
Hence the idea of Fiber Expo was born, as a place where the fiber producers, fiber artists, and fiber users can meet and do business.
Classes will be available in many of the fiber arts. Vendors will be on site offering a wide selection of products. Breeders will be exhibiting some of their fiber animals such as alpacas, sheep, and angora rabbits at the show to educate the public about their care.
Fiber Expo takes place March 22, 9am-5pm and March 23, 10am-4pm. Admission: $4 (children under 12 free), $6 two days. Location: Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds, 5055 Ann Arbor Saline Road, Ann Arbor.
