Yarnfiti Community Art Project

Our annual Yarnfiti Community Art Project will be unveiled during the Fall Fiber Festival. Yarnfiti was first launched in 2017 out of a desire to provide fiber artists, and aspiring fiber artists, with a fun and collaborative outlet for their creativity. The project decorated the library with a joyous riot of colors and textures reflecting the varied interests, experiences and personalities that make up our community. This year, we are inviting participants to help us craft a fantastical garden out of yarn.
