It has been proposed that we hold our 2017 Show & Sale at the NJ Sheep and Fiber Festival held the 2nd weekend in September.
Our members are busy with their projects to be submitted for sale at this event: spinning, weaving, dyeing, tapestry weaving, knitting, and crocheting.
Throughout the year our members demonstrate at area craft fairs, festivals, schools and historic sites. This is a time for the public to meet Guild members and see firsthand how we practice our crafts. Interested visitors of all ages learn from the visual and tactile teaching exhibits about spinning, weaving and dyeing, and can try their hands at weaving on a sample loom or spinning on a wheel or drop spindle.
We are committed to educating the public about fiber arts and welcome opportunities to demonstrate and answer questions. Please contact us if your group or school would like to schedule a demonstration, exhibit or talk.
