7th Annual Fiber Festival

Champlain Islands Fiber Bees 

7th Annual Fiber Festival - 13th August 2016

Sponsored by Green Mountain Hooked Rugs, North Hero Village, VT

Submitted by Ti Seymour – President




What a fabulous day spent socializing with this amazing group of ladies.  Dawna Matthew, Louise G. de Tonnancour and Ti Seymour travelled across the border to be a part of the Fiber Festival.  Lynn Soule played an excellent host/MC for the day and “her people” rallied to provide delicious treats/lunch, tea cup auction, door prizes and live auction. Our Dawna was a lucky winner in the raffle and I may have brought home the Olympic Gold in the Auction.




The Fiber Festival also hosted an exhibition of members beautiful rugs for visitors to admire. Visitors included the general public who were welcome to wander the exhibited rugs and see the rugs being hooked inside. Our Sherwood Forest rug was also featured in the show.

Vendors included:

Deb Ennis: Roving, felting and wool
Mariah Krauss, Green Mountain Hooked Rugs
Mary Lee O'Conner

Thanks again CIFB for the invitation, it was a pleasure spending the day with you.
