8th Annual Middle Tennessee Fiber Festival – May 22-23, 2015
Wow, can you believe it will be our 8th year? Every year we try to build on and improve the event. All three buildings are full with a variety of vendors, both returning favorites and new vendors.
We have workshops scheduled for two days, Friday and Saturday. Click here for our workshop registration page and you can also find all workshops and classes listed by day and time on the 2015 schedule page here.
We will have a shearer coming on Saturday and are planning various demonstrations. We will also have door prizes to be given away several times each day.
We’ve added a new workshop registration system to the website that should make things easier. Simply browse the classes you’d like to attend and add them to your cart as you go, then checkout and pay through PayPal.
We’ve also added a newsletter this year, which you can subscribe to at the right by simply entering and confirming your email address.
We’ll be using the newsletter to send out Festival updates as well as highlights of classes and demonstrations that will be occurring at this year’s Fiber Fest.
The Festival is in Dickson, Tennessee on May 22 and 23, 2015. Friday will be 12-6 and Saturday 9-5. Dickson is located just an hour West of Nashville, just 5 miles off of I-40 exit 172. There are several new hotels/motels at that exit from the major chains; Holiday Inn, Comfort Inn, Best Western, etc., along with chain restaurants like Applebee’s, Logan’s, O’Charlie’s and Cracker Barrel.
Downtown Dickson has a revitalized Main Street, with lots of little specialty shops, antique shops, a coffee shop and several nice diners and sandwich shops. Try the “Grown up Grilled Cheese” at the House Blend Coffee Shop…it is fabulous!
We hope to see you at the Festival!
We have a Facebook both a page and a group for the Fiber Festival. Vendors and instructors are posting news and discussing the festival.
Print out your copy of the Festival Program to bring with you so you can see it in full color. Programs at the festival will sadly be black and white.
Fleece Sale and Auction
There will be a sale area for fleeces at the festival. They can be sold at a set price or by using a bidding sheet. Those bringing several fleeces may want to bring address labels or business cards to attach to the fleece entry sheets to save time. The entry form should be used for each fleece and the log sheet should be used to list all of the fleeces you are selling and will be used to settle up at the end of the sale.
Fleeces should be entered by 9 am Saturday.
