OVERMOUNTAIN WEAVERS’ GUILD FIBER FAIR
Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park

Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park in Elizabethton, TN will come alive once again on the weekend of Saturday & Sunday, March 14 & 15, 2020 for its annual Fiber Fair presented by the Overmountain Weavers Guild from Exchange Place in Kingsport, Tennessee. It is part of the Guild’s mission to keep alive the time-honored skills of the fiber arts.
During this weekend many of the most talented fiber artists of the region will come together to share their talents and their wares. Weavers will throw their shuttles, spinners will ply their yarns, and botanists will transform tough plant stalks into silky fibers.
Visitors will be invited to try their hand at a loom or a spinning wheel! Knitters
and crocheters will answer questions and give helpful hints about their craft.
Hands-on opportunities for children will be available.
In addition, many area vendors will be selling fine hand-made items throughout the event. Examples of items that will be for sale include natural yarns, handwoven items, beautiful jewelry, hand-made scarves, house-wares, mittens and hats, goat milk soap and related products, and roving.
For visitors interested in learning to weave, guild members will offer a chance to
sign up for a beginning weaving classes during August 2020.
A sign-up sheet will be available at the OMWG
information desk at the Fiber Festival.
Admission is free and all are welcome. Come and enjoy a fun and educational day
with the entire family.
