MINI FIBER FESTIVAL at My Manakin Market

THIS SATURDAY, May 11th, from 9am – 1pm at My Manakin Market, 68 Broad Street Road, Manakin-Sabot, VA

Bob will bring our pretty little Maggie to the MMM so that she can “Release her Fleece”. MMM is hosting a Mini Fiber Festival this Saturday. Be sure to join Bob along with these fine local fiber producers and artisans while they demonstrate various fiber processing techniques and fiber arts.  We will literally take the clothes off several alpacas and a few llamas, but don’t worry…it’s still a family activity!  Teri Phipps with Fireweed Farm Alpacas will be teaching us how all that fluffy fleece turns into such nice clothes when we shear, skirt, dye, card and spin the fibers right there at the My Manakin Market.  We’ll also have a felted soap activity and a couple of other fun activities for kids.  Regular MMM alpaca vendors, the Hyders of Eagle View Farm, will have their fine display of alpaca fiber products available for purchase, as well as hot coffee and cocoa, eggs, honey and other wax products.  Additional vendors include:

 Teri Phipps & David Schieferstein – Fireweed Alpacas
Carol & Dan Mericle – Rockville Alpacas
Mickie Cox – Fiber artist
Lisa & James Dearden – Cedar Glen Farm & Alpacas
Marion Holmes – Ashland Alpacas
Derrick Spangler & Mark King – DNA Shearing
