The 2nd annual Fayette County Fiber Festival is being held on Saturday, June 1, 2024, at the Fayette County Fairgrounds to shine a spotlight on all things yarn and fiber related.

You will enjoy fiber arts demonstrations and discover a world of things made by hand. From small-batch hand dyed yarn to carefully crafted tools, from carefully crafted project bags and stitch markers to gentle lotions and wool washes, there will be something to inspire everyone. Every vendor at this curated event is an independent maker creating their products with quality, loving care, and hands-on dedication.

Keri Fosbrink of Youghiogheny Yarns in Connellsville, PA, is sponsoring and organizing the fiber festival. For every participant, the festival is a way to foster a love of the fiber arts. Everyone involved is not only sharing their work, but also their passion and joy for their craft. A little piece of each of them goes into everything they create. Through the sharing of ideas and cultivating of community, the heritage of fiber craft is kept thriving for the present and coming generations. Whether you are a professional artist, a serious hobbyist, or just someone who appreciates the fiber arts, this festival will have something for you.

The vendor market features over two dozen artisans from PA, OH, MD, VA and WV offering a wide variety of hand dyed yarns, spinning fiber, raw fleeces, hand crafted tools, notions, accessories, hand crafted soaps and lotions as well as hand knit, hand sewn and crocheted items for sale. The Loyalhannon Spinners and Weavers Guild will also provide a fleece-to-shawl demonstration to further inspire you.
