LOCAL CLOTH'S FAVORITE PASTURE TO PRODUCT EVENT

Wondering what to do on the first Saturday in May this year? Kentucky Derby? Virtual Maryland Sheep and Wool? How about Fiber Farmers Day!

This spring, Local Cloth's 9th annual Fiber Farmers Day will be held at the WNC Agricultural Center sales barn. Where it all began! We're hoping for a mild spring day for you to find your favorite wool, mohair, camelid fleece, yarn, roving or handmade item. Farmers will share space in the area that has temporary horse stalls where there is plenty of room to spread out so that vendors and shoppers stay safe. There will be no horses in the stalls!

Even though it will be at the Ag Center we have again decided to limit the sale to product only. (No animals ) Spinners, bring your wheel and join the spinning circle. Knitters and crocheters are welcome to bring needles and hooks and join in, too. We'll also demonstrate how fleece is carded and combed to prepare it for spinning.
