5th Annual RI Wool & Fiber Fest

This Saturday, May 21, is the 5th Annual Rhode Island Wool and Fiber Festival at the Coggeshall Farm Museum in Bristol, RI.  This festival is the only fiber festival in RI, and no fiber enthusiasts should miss it! 

There will be vendors with knitting, crocheting, and spinning related wares for sale, yarns to purchase, alpacas to pet (at least there were last year!), and demonstrations from the Coggeshall Farm craftspeople of traditional and contemporary fiber arts.  You'll be able to see spinning demos and sheep shearing too!

The festival runs 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.this Saturday.  Don't miss it!  Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for Seniors and Children ages 6-12.  Children 5 and under are free. Go here for directions to the farm. 

 Many of the Gurls of Fresh Purls will be there.  Say hi if you see one of us!
