History is alive and well and you
can experience it at the 10th annual
Western New York Fiber Arts
Festival, September 27th from 10 am to 5 pm. at the Ski Lodge in Emery Park,
South Wales, NY. The event will open your eyes to how people have provided for
themselves for generations. Need a set of clothes? Want to see how it was made
100 years ago, 200 years ago, 500 years ago? The connection between humans and
animals, plants and insects is ancient and ongoing.
This Festival is one of many throughout the country that highlights the art of
turning gifts of Mother Nature into useful and beautiful items. There are over
40 vendors, including fiber artists, farmers, shepherds, alpaca and llama
raisers, and artisans making soaps and potions to keep you healthy.
Spinners of fiber from wool to flax, weavers, knitters, lace-makers and quilters
will demonstrate their skills and show off their fine wares. You can
participate in workshops to learn these skills as well. You will find
one-of-a-kind sweaters, blankets, hats and mittens, woodcarvings, pottery and
purses among the many offerings.
You can eat and drink and even find some local wine. Kids
will find make-n-take fun, a jump rope maker and even see silkworms in action.
The entry fee is $5 for those over 10. For more information visit
or call Victoria at 716-652-3237.
