Yarnfiti Community Art Project

Our annual Yarnfiti Community Art Project was unveiled during the Fall Fiber Festival. Yarnfiti was 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 invited participants to help us craft a fantastical garden out of yarn.
