3rd Annual Okanogan Valley Fiber Festival- Save the date!
More fiber news from our ANWG rep,Tamie:
Greetings Fiber Enthusiasts-
We hope you all had a great holiday season and are enjoying the longer days and promise of lots of good things to come in 2016. One of those good things is the 3rd Annual Okanogan Valley Fiber Festival, which will take place on May 6-7 (that’s a Friday and Saturday) at the Okanogan County Fairgrounds Agriplex. The planning team has been working away getting the foundation laid for a fabulous festival, and things are coming together nicely.
We are accepting applications for vendors and workshop instructors now- all the information is on our web site: www.okfiberfest.org. There you will find the on-line forms and all the relevant information, so check it out, and spread the word to folks in the fiber community.
We still need volunteers to help out with planning, and also with duties during the festival itself. We could use coordinators for the following areas:
- Friday night dinner
- Info table
- Stitch and Knit Bus
If you would be willing to join the planning team and take charge of any of these tasks, please let us know. There is a button on the web site where you can submit your information, and we will contact you to discuss details. Note- almost all of our planning discussions are via free conference call or e-mail, so you can help out even if you don’t live nearby.
We are now on Instagram (#okfiberfest), Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter, so be sure to “Like us” and keep in touch. We will be posting updates frequently.
Looking forward to seeing you in May!
