Dear Friends, Join us for a wonderful, community based fiber & handmade festival in the heart of Brooklyn, New York -- the Annual Kings County Fiber Festival. The date for next year’s Fair is Saturday, October 8th, during Columbus Day weekend. The Kings County Fiber Festival serves to encourage the revival of traditional fiber arts. The Festival embraces both fiber and handmade artists and the resource providers that make their work possible. Hosted on the grounds of the Old Stone House of Brooklyn & Washington Park* - originally built in 1699 as the Vechte family farm - the Kings County Fiber Festival includes crocheters, dyers, felters, knitters, quilters, spinners, and weavers, as well as artists creating design works that incorporate fiber as an integral material. Our goal is to raise awareness of both historic and contemporary approaches to the fiber arts. In addition to the array of materials for sale, there will be plenty of demonstrations and hands-on opportunities for visitors. We look forward to seeing you October 8th. *Washington Park is a New York City public park. NYC regulations are in effect: no smoking, pets, barbecuing/grilling, or use of alcohol or illegal drugs.
