YWCA Fiber Fest 2008

On Saturday, March 15th, the YWCA marked its first fiber festival.  Approximately 100 individuals gathered to celebrate Women's History Month by sharing and honoring traditionally women's crafts. The day included such workshops as felting, knitting a sock, and spinning.  Demonstrations throughout the day included dying fiber and spinning.  The marketplace drew vendors from Northeast Ohio and featured raw to finished products.  Yarn, sweaters, hats, socks, purses, along with dyes, handcrafted knitting needles, smocked baby gowns, jewelry, and soaps were available.
