CNY Fiber Artists to hold annual fiber festival

The annual CNY Fiber Artists and Producers Fiber Festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9, at the Butternut Hill Campground on Route 20 in Bouckville.

There will be 100 booths filled with vendors selling many fiber products, demonstrations, exhibits and animals including sheep, alpacas, goats, llamas and rabbits. The children’s tent will feature fun activities for all ages.

New this year is an antique tractor display, sponsored by the CNY Antique Tractor Club. Another new addition to the festival is a raw fleece sale on Saturday, featuring fiber from a variety of animals.

Throughout the two-day festival, fiber artisans will be demonstrating such skills as spinning, felting, knitting and weaving on a variety of looms; grooming angora rabbits and goats; shearing sheep; and packing with llamas. Food will be available to purchase on the grounds.

Admission to the event is $5 for ages 12 and up. Parking is free, and all booths are located under cover so the event will be held rain or shine. For more information, visit cynfiber.org.
