Plans are underway for Carolina FiberFest with more of what you loved in 2011 plus new ways to fuel your fiber passions. Mark you calendar for May 18—20 at the Jim Graham Building, NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh.
Explore the World of Fiber Arts
Make yourself at home in the Fiber Arts Village. Go for the gold in the Fiber Olympics: fastest needles and fastest spinning wheels will own the honors. Take a class or two or three. Show off your handwork in the Continuous Strand Weaving contest, the Skein and Garment competition and the Sheep to Shawl contest. Rub elbows with fellow fiber fanatics. Shop for those special somethings—yarn, roving, tools, patterns, accessories—that make you say gotta have that.
Sponsor opportunities are available.
Visit here often for updates and tell everybody!
Next May, half of the Graham Bldg will belong to CFF, with 47,500 square feet of fiber heaven. That’s 15,000 more than 2011′s event.
Why? Because your financial support of Carolina FiberFest directly promotes fiber-related activities, fiber education, small farms and education about agricultural issues facing farmers throughout North Carolina. Continuing commitment to education and information is what sets Carolina FiberFest apart.
Individual and business sponsorships are welcomed. Four sponsor levels plus two contest sponsorships provide a variety of options to partner with Carolina FiberFest. All levels will be recognized on this website and during the three-day festival; other forms of sponsor appreciation will be provided. And, remember, a gift of support will advertise your business to thousands of website and event visitors. Get started by downloading a sponsor form. It’s that easy.
Invest in the future of the fiber community at large by becoming a sponsor.
