DFW Fiber Fest 2020

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.
