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 27th and 28th, 2016. Friday will be 12-6 and Saturday 9-5 at the Dickson County Fairgrounds. The physical address of the Fairgrounds is 1053 TN-47 Dickson, TN 37055.
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 restaurants like Applebee’s, Logan’s, O’Charlie’s and Cracker Barrel close to the Interstate. We are also close to beautiful Montgomery Bell State Park which features campgrounds, hiking trails, and recreation for the whole family.
Downtown Dickson has a revitalized Main Street, with lots of little specialty shops, antique shops, a coffee shop and several nice restaurants and sandwich shops. Try the “Grown up Grilled Cheese” at the House Blend Coffee Shop…it is fabulous! There is also House of Brews if you’re in the mood for late night eats and drinks. Back Alley BBQ and Ronnie’s Q are great if you are in the mood for some Tennessee BBQ!
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.

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. 2016 fleece auct.-directions & Log sheet 2016 Fleece Auction Bidding Sheet
