We would like to take this time to invite you to be a part of our new event; the McHenry County Fair’s Spring Fiber Fling. Our goal is to create an educational event focused on fiber and the process from “Sheep to Shawl”. It will be a weekend event with various activities and events for the public to take part in, learn, and purchase anything from art supplies to a finished handmade product. We will have different livestock shows and demonstrations going on around the grounds for spectators to enjoy. Our goal is to have 2 buildings set up for our crafters, artisans and fiber related venders with booths set up to sell everything from fiber art supplies (wool, knitting needles, crochet hooks, cloth, etc.) to finished products (handmade items). We will then have a third building set up for classrooms where we will have instructors teaching different skill sets at different experience levels. The classes will consist of, but are not limited to, spinning, weaving, quilting, sewing, knitting, and fiber animal management classes. We are very excited for the event and cannot wait to give this educational experience to our community.
Check back soon for a schedule of events and a list of classes.
