Black Swamp Spinners Guild (Ohio)
The 25th Market Day and Fiber Fair at the Bowling Green County Fairgrounds brought together handspun yarns and handcrafted items reminiscent of a village fair. Hosted by the Black Swamp Spinner’s Guild (Ohio), it included tatting, paper quilling, rug hooking, soap-making and perfume fragrances as well as vendors of fleeces, roving, knitting yarns, woven items, supplies, and equipment. A local Boy Scout troop offered luncheon specials, and members gave on-going demonstrations of spinning. A four-panel educational display board illustrated the fiber process showing samples and swatches alongside pictures from a children’s book.
