8th AnnualÂ Middle Tennessee Fiber Festival – May 22-23, 2015
Thank you everyone for making the 8th Annual Festival a huge success. A special thanks to all of my volunteers, vendors and family members. We couldn’t have done it without you!
We left the 2015 schedule, classes, vendor information and teacher information up for a while so that folks can get contact information should they need it. The classes are still up for information purposes but the inventory is “sold out” so no one can inadvertently sign up.

We’veÂ 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 27 and 28, 2016. Friday will be 12-6 and Saturday 9-5 at the Dickson County Fairgrounds. The physical address of the Fairgrounds is 1035 W. Walnut Street. 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, Oâ€™Charlieâ€™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.
Facebook Group We use the group to have discussions about the festival.
Fleece Sale and Auction
There will be a sale area for fleecesÂ at the festival. They can be sold at a set price or by using a bidding sheet.Â Â 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.
