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.
We will continue our anticipation and preparation for Houston Fiber Fest. Please bring projects you have made with yarn purchased at past Houston Fiber Fests (or just bring the yarn if you are still thinking about the perfect project for that yarn). We will discuss vendors and share our shopping lists!
This month we will have Nancy Polychronopoulos tell us all we need to know about Houston Fiber Fest which will be held June 21st – Jun 23rd at the Berry Center. Learn all about vendors and classes. Make plans to see your friends. We will cover it all at our May meeting!

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.
This year the festival will be held in a new location – the Hill Country Youth Event Center in Kerrville, TX.
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.
