The Network is taking its show on the road!
Join us Saturday, July 16th from noon to 4 p.m. at River Colors Studio in Lakewood, Ohio.
Erika, the owner of River Colors, is an enthusiastic supporter of local yarn and fiber. She has put together a day showcasing local producers and the Network is proud to be involved.
Several of our member farms will be there with Ohio born and raised yarn, fleece and roving. We'll be demonstrating yarn dyeing and painting at 1, 2 & 3 p.m., for about 15 minutes each time.
We'll also have a spinner or two showing you how to create your own yarn from some of the prettiest roving around. And for the adventurous, experienced spinners, we'll have raw fleece for sale.
So come on out and talk to us. Buy an Ohio produced product. Support your local fiber farmer.
I think once you've held some of our fiber in your hands, you'll be hooked!
The Fiber Network is a member of Ohio Proud and would like to encourage you to support Ohio-based yarns and fibers. Come meet our local people, learn about the importance of local yarns in the fiber world and celebrate our fiber-rich state!
About the Network
- The Ohio Natural Fiber Network
- is dedicated to supporting Ohio fiber producers and artists, and to developing awareness of the diversity and beauty of Ohio farm yarns and fleeces. Our fiber farmers raise alpacas, llamas, sheep, goats and angora rabbits for their beautiful fiber. Our fiber artists dye, hook, spin, knit, weave and felt the most beautiful fiber art you've ever seen. Knitters, check out our Ravelry group on-line. You can also follow us on Facebook. We're hoping you make 2012 the year you decide to go on an Ohio Fiber Diet by supporting your local fiber producer or artist! We don't think you'll be disappointed.
