At fleece and fiber festivals, fashion is more than just a spectator sport.

The chance to observe the parade of truly amazing garments, hats, socks, scarves, and shawls is really a highlight of every festival. And we can’t limit ourselves to observing. Have you heard of the weaver’s handshake — that “accidental” stumble toward someone wearing what might be qiviut, that provides the opportunity to find out what that gorgeous shawl feels like?
A fiber festival is the perfect place to wear your beautiful creations with pride while you also admire the creativity of your fellow fiber lovers. Oh yes, and you’ll have all the inspiration you need to take home bags brimming over with more fleece and yarn so you can get an early start on next year’s festival!
