Good Morning Fiber Enthusiasts!
has arrived, lambs, crias and kids are being born daily, and we are exactly 2
months away from the Okanogan Valley Fiber Festival. It's a very busy time of
year, but we hope that you will take some time out to come and visit us at the
Agriplex on May 30-31, and experience the beautiful Okanogan Valley in all it's
This is just a reminder that
we still have some spaces left in our workshops, and if you sign up before the
end of April, you can take advantage of the early bird discount. Also, we now
have all the details on the fleece grading and sorting up on our web site. We
are particularly excited about this part of our event, as it is the first time
that we know of that a regional sort (fleece sorting and grading) has been done
in a fiber festival setting. This is an opportunity for anyone who raises fiber
animals (sheep, alpaca, goat or rabbit) to have their fleeces professionally
evaluated, with the opportunity to sell them on site. In order to be as
efficient as possible, we are require pre-registration for fleeces to guarantee
evaluation. Last minute fleeces will only be done if there is time. All the
information is on our web site: www.okfiberfest.org.
be contacting you again with more updates on the Festival, and our web site is
updated frequently. Please check it out, make your plans now, and forward this
message to all of your fiber-loving
P.S. For all you Facebook users
out there, we have an event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/741292199300950/
us know if you're coming, and share with other Facebook friends.

Guests are welcome to come...bring your knitting, spinning wheel or other fibre addictions.
