The Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival brings guilds together
The Valley Friendly Spinners and Twist O' Wool Guild (Vermont) held a Drop In & Spin event during the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival last October. Children were welcome with adult supervision, and free fiber arts and crafts activities were offered for kids ages five and up. Bobbin lace, knitting, and weaving were also part of the ongoing fiber demonstrations. The Northeast Handspinners Association donated a Best Skein Award to the Handspun Yarn Contest to help foster and encourage participants.
