Houston Fiber Fest is looking to expand their Demo area this year and is asking for your help. If you have a 30 minute demonstration or skills-building tutorial related to fiber-based crafts you would like to present, let them know. Demos could relate to knitting, crocheting, spinning, felting, dyeing, etc. Opportunities are available on Friday and Saturday, June 21-22, 10:30 – 5:30 and on Sunday, June 23, 10:30 – 2:30. If you would like to propose a demo or a tutorial, please click here to email Marie.
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 in East Texas! 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
Kid ‘N Ewe is Texas’s premier fiber arts festival for spinners, weavers, knitters, crocheters, felters, and anyone else who enjoys the wide variety of fiber arts.

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.
Join us for a Knit in Public event at Saint Arnold Brewery from 11am to 3pm Saturday, March 25th. Get to know members from other chapters, show off your WIPs, and learn about charity knitting opportunities while sampling delicious local craft beer. Saint Arnold also has a fantastic non-alcoholic root beer, as well as food service.
We will reserve several tables for the event, please RSVP to the Facebook event or to knitatnightguildworkshop@
