2010 Scheduled Demonstrations (changes and substitutions could be made at any time)

Fiber College is all about learning.  The planning committee spends months soliciting instructors with special talents, invites only vendors who are selling supplies and equipment that will fuel your fires (this is definitely not a craft fair), hosts an evening of show and tell on Saturday night and has scheduled demonstrations on a wide range of fiber related topics throughout the weekend.

Yes, the classes are inexpensive but the founding principle of the College and the intent of all the volunteers is to build community and awareness of the vast world of Fiber Arts…both traditional and innovative.  We’re happy if you sign up for a class, but we’re truly satisfied when you sign up for several and just hang out in the Campground for the entire weekend soaking up the atmosphere and making friends during the social events.  If you just want to hang out for the day without taking classes, a $5 fee covers your entrance, beach walks and garden meanders.
