This year marks a significant milestone with the 10th Annual Autumn Fiber Festival. A decade-long tradition, this festival has been the cornerstone for local fiber producers, craftsmen, and artists to come together and celebrate the rich tapestry of skills and products in the fiber community.

A Tapestry of Talent and Tradition

The festival serves both as a marketplace and as an educational venue. Skilled artisans will be on hand to demonstrate their crafts, offering a unique opportunity for the public to learn about the intricate processes involved in creating fiber art. From spinning to weaving, dyeing to knitting, the festival promises a comprehensive look into the world of natural fibers and their cultural significance.

Where Threads of Community Weave Together

Taking place in the Arts and Crafts Building at the Richland County Fairgrounds in Mansfield, the festival provides a spacious and inviting atmosphere. It’s not just a venue but a community hub where attendees can engage in meaningful conversations, share knowledge, and even pick up a new craft.

The Marketplace

The festival is your ultimate destination for all fiber-related needs:

  • Raw Natural Fibers: Sourced from both plants and animals.
  • Yarn: Varieties that are hand-spun, mill-spun, and hand-dyed.
  • Craft Supplies: From spinning wheels to crochet hooks, find all you need.
  • Dyes and Kits: Get creative with colors.
  • Unique Fiber Art: Discover one-of-a-kind pieces that stand out.
  • Fiber Equipment: Elevate your crafting game with specialized tools.

Fiber Animals on Display

Adding a touch of life to the festival are various types of fiber animals that will be showcased throughout the weekend. It’s a rare chance to meet the woolly and furry contributors to the fiber world, making it an educational and fun experience for visitors of all ages.

The Spirit of Giving

In the spirit of community and giving, the festival will host a raffle to benefit the local 4-H Club and Richland County Food Banks. With free admission and parking, the event ensures that everyone has the opportunity to participate and contribute to these noble causes.

So, mark your calendars and prepare to be part of a community that cherishes craftsmanship, education, and philanthropy. The festival awaits you on October 21, from 10 AM to 5 PM, and October 22, from 11 AM to 4 PM. Admission and parking are free.
