DFW Fiber Fest is the premier annual fiber event in the Dallas-Fort Worth community. Held each Spring, DFW Fiber Fest is a locally focused non-profit organization that offers both vendors and classes. We bring in a juried selection of local and regional fiber vendors (with a few who are from outside of our regional area to spice up the mix). Educationally, we offer a slate of classes from both nationally known and local teachers in the fiber arts – primarily in knitting, crochet, and spinning.
Come and join the fun at the East Texas Fiber Festival! Growers, spinners, creators of all kinds are welcome! There will be vendors, demonstrations, a silent auction, and classes.
Friday – noon to 6pm
Saturday – 9am to 4pm

There’s more to Houston Fiber Fest than just classes and shopping; there’s also the fun of meeting new friends! The Meet-Up Table in the atrium (look for the balloons!) is the place to be. There will be knit- and crochet-alongs, stitch marker swaps, demos, and lots of opportunities for you to talk with other Houston area fiber enthusiasts who share your interests. When the vendor hall closes on Friday and Saturday evening, gather at the table to coordinate group outings to local restaurants.
