Contest registration is open from June 1-August 30. Entries will be judged on the basis of creativity, skill level required, utility and attendance in fiber arts classes.
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.
