Great Basin Fiber Arts Fair
The second Great Basin Fiber Arts Fair was September 15–16 at Wheeler Historic Farm in Salt Lake City, Utah. This event brings attention to the Great Basin region of the United States and showcases local fiber artists. Last year featured the Society for Creative Anachronism demonstrating crafts from the medieval historical period and performing an unchoreographed fight “to the death” in full armor with swords and battleaxes. A Scottish “waulking,” kid’s activity zone, workshops, classes, and llama obstacle course provided a fun environment to learn about fiber arts.
