Yarnfiti Community Art Project
Experience the magic of going under the sea in this year's Yarnfiti installation. Lose yourself amongst giant coral reefs and in a mermaid's grotto. Seach for treasure in a sunken pirate ship and discover the ocean's depths in our deep sea tunnel, complete with lights and sound. Visit the Yarnfiti table to make your own pom pom sea urchin.
The Fall Fiber Fest features local exhibitors from throughout Central Florida. Exhibitors will include craftspeople, fiber artists, and vendors of high-quality supplies.
Twin Mommy Creations was started in 2012 for my boys, Dylan and Ethan, as a way to save money to make sure that they can go to college when the time comes. I have a small fiber studio located in central Florida, where I create Hand Dyed OOAK yarns and fibers.
Beach Bunny Yarns offers unique, color-coordinated, hand-dyed yarns for knitters, crocheters, and weavers. All our yarn is sourced here in the USA. We use wool that is bred and milled in the US, so you can rest assured that it's ethically produced and a fair wage product.
The Weavers of Orlando have been around for 75 years. We're reintroducing spinning and weaving to the 21st century. Vvisitors to our table will be able to weave on the loom and leave with a 'make and take' friendship bracelet disk introducing a Kumihimo braid.
The Barn Yarn
The Barn Yarn opened its doors in June 2014 in the historic building Angela designed and rennovated! Our goal was to inspire adults to create and we did just that! Weavers, spinners, crocheters and knitters alike all love the variety we offer. Fast forward to today.
