The Kings County Fiber Festival returns to OSH for an eighth year! Join us for this celebration of the handmade.

We’re proud to host a curated selection of vendors who will showcase their fine fiber arts and supplies for sale along the park on 5th Avenue and 3rd and 4th Streets. Workshop offerings will include “Arm Knitting”, and a “Fleece to Shawl Challenge”, and an artist demonstration by Tahir Carl Karmali & Jessi Highnet in partnership with the No More Water exhibition at OSH. New to the festival this year an artist talk and live exhibit with crochet artist Nassat_Nation who has a Sargent Pepper fashion style.

This year is also the 2nd annual “Make Warm Hats for the Homeless” hat drive, last year we distributed over 400 hats to two soup kitchens and an LGBTQ shelter. Bring hats to donate!
