A Farm to Fiber Arts Experience!
Take a walk through the daily routines of our farmers and ranchers in Texas. Learn about fiber raising to fiber processing through live demos and showcases.
Get a glimpse at the many talented works using wool and mohair. This is a contest as well as a display. Learn how you can participate.
Learn about which flowers to add to your basket for a colorful, natural dye kitchen.
We promised we'd bring back the fiber in this fiber event! Thanks to the stellar Shave 'Em to Save 'Em program sponsored by The Livestock Conservancy, we are able to bring you raw, washed, dyed and downright amazing heritage sheep wool.
HERITAGE BREEDS AT TFF
Gulf Coast, Heritage Shetland, Jacob, Leicester Longwool.
There will be demos Saturday morning with Ellen Baize (Baize Shetlands) in washing fleece. Jenn Kulick (The Sheepwalk) will be nearby with a greasy fleece ready for the picking and skirting. We will be showcasing the colored Angora goat this year too!
THE MINI-MINI MILL
We will have a fiber processing station set up for demo. You can expect to see hand carders, drum carders, a triple picker, blending board, and combs. We will have projects up and running throughout the weekend showcasing the versatility of different types of fiber.
Right Choice Shearing will be returning to demo what they do best. Look for a Shepherds Worshop on Sheep Handling 101 too!
We invite you to join us on the front porch with your knitting, crochet, weaving, spinning and other fiber art project! You will be sitting among other talented folk like yourself and making new old friends.
Watch a demo or sit down for a "make 'n' take" experience.
We are inviting ALL guilds in the area to join us. Tell your story and share your craft!
