Saturday 10 AM-5 PM + Sunday 10 AM-4 PM 

$7 per person, 12 and under free 

The Finger Lakes Fiber Festival educates the public about fiber and its sources, promotes small farms, supports fiber artists and fiber-related businesses, and provides a venue for the public to interact with the fiber arts world.

By sharing skills and knowledge with the public through demonstrations and workshops, the Finger Lakes Fiber Festival is sowing the seeds for future generations of fiber artists and craftspeople.

Our festival features great vendors, with everything you need for fiber arts: raw fleece, roving, spinning supplies, needle felting supplies, dyes, yarns, items needed to knit, crochet, weave—and things you won’t know you need until you see them—not to mention unique, one-of-a-kind, handmade finished items!

 


Volunteering

Our festival is organized entirely by volunteers and the festival could not happen without the many people who generously give of their time each year.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Vicki Beighley.  Volunteering entitles you to free admission for the day you volunteer (plus the opportunity to hang out with other fiber-loving people)!
