While we are disappointed that the Fiber Fest was cancelled, we are extremely excited to be able to hold this event in lieu of the real Fiber Fest. Steinhaus Keller, the German Restaurant next to Knittin On The Corner, has graciously allowed us to use their patio during the day so that we can knit outside. They will be open for dinner if anyone is looking for somewhere local to eat. We invite everyone to come and knit with us and shop or take a class while you are here. We might not be able to have the official Fiber Fest, but that won’t stop us from knitting, crocheting or spinning. See you then!
