Join us for this year’s annual Kings County Fiber Festival! There will be yarn for sale, workshops to participate in, and a great day of community gathering.
The Kings County Fiber Festival embraces both fiber artists and the resource providers that make their work possible. Hosted on the grounds of the Old Stone House & Washington Park – originally built in 1699 as the Vechte family farm – the Kings County Fiber Festival includes an array of indie crocheters, dyers, felters, knitters, quilters, spinners, and weavers, as well as artists creating design works that incorporate fiber as an integral material. Our goal is to raise awareness of both historic and contemporary approaches to the fiber arts.
10 am – 5 pm
The new craze is Arm Crochet and we love it. Join us for our free workshop– all you need are your two arms and some chunky yarn. Arm crochet creates a big, loopy fabric for your autumn fashion accessories. Mix multiple stands of your favorite colors together to create a unique palette of colors.
