DFW Fiber Fest is the premier annual fiber event in the Dallas-Fort Worth community. Held each Spring, DFW Fiber Fest is a locally focused non-profit organization that offers both vendors and classes. We bring in a juried selection of local and regional fiber vendors (with a few who are from outside of our regional area to spice up the mix). Educationally, we offer a slate of classes from both nationally known and local teachers in the fiber arts – primarily in knitting, crochet, and spinning. (For more about DFW Fiber fest, see the “About” page.)
This month’s program on Hand-Dying Yarn With Natural Dyes is being presented by Penny and Peggy of Sky Loom Weavers in Cat Springs, Texas. Penny and Peggy will talk about the process they use to create beautiful yarn using flowers, plants, and other natural materials, and show us how we can do it at home. They will also be bringing hand-dyed yarn from their shop that will be available for sale.
