2023 Gore Place Sheepshearing Festival Exclusive Fiber Package
I had a delightful time vending at the Gore Place Sheepshearing Festival in Waltham, MA in 2022 and contacted the event coordinators to ask if they would set aside some space in the fiber tent near my booth for spinners to gather and spin together. They said they would love to and would provide it free of charge!
APRIL 2023 GORE PLACE SPIN-IN (SATURDAY TBD)
- $0.00 Seat Reservation
- $50 EXCLUSIVE FIBER PACKAGE
$50 will provide you with an Gore Place Exclusive 2023 fiber package (4oz dyed roving and a 2-3oz art batt) from my shop for you to pickup at the festival (between 10am-5pm) and enjoy spinning in your reserved space!
You do not need a fiber package to join the spin-in.
If you are planning on attending and would like me to set up a chair space for you in the spinning area, please select "Seat Reservation" ($0.00) and I will have a chair waiting! I will not put names on chairs, so whatever chair spots are available when you arrive is yours! There will be extra chairs as well in case we have more attendees.
This event is family-friendly Saturday only with live music, delicious food, multiple fiber tents, multiple crafters, sheep dog demonstrations, a may pole dance, archery field, blacksmithing, fife and drum parades, and fiber activities for kids!
I drew crowds (especially young children, who were entranced) all day with my spinning demonstration and thought it would be a great idea to invite creative and traditional yarn spinners to gather together to spin and enjoy each other's company!
You will need to purchase an entry ticket to Gore Place to attend the festival (not included in the price of this fiber package).
