| Fiber Art "Educational" Festival
Held on the front lawn of R&M Yarns
Annually on the 1st Saturday of November
10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Not your typical Festival...our vendors are asked to "educate" the public
on what their particular skill is.
Great opportunity for children to get "up close & personal"
with fiber and fiber animals.

| 2011 Festival (1st)
(call the Store for color & size choices available)
(artwork by local artist, Avery McNeese, Cleveland, Tennessee)
Vendors are by "invitation only"--all vendors must demonstrate their particular artist abilities.
Our goal is to be
primarily an "educational" fiber festival showcasing as many different techniques as possible.
Demonstrators will also be offering animals and their handmade finished products for sale.
