Hours are 10 am - 5 pm both days

The 2017 Fleece & Fiber Sale registration materials are up on the website. ONLINE REGISTRATION IS OPEN!  Registration of entries in the sale MUST be made ON-LINE.   As a reminder, you do need to be a member of CNY FAP to put fiber into the sale.  Go to the Membership webpage to join.  

      Besides the membership requirement, we only charge an entry fee of $3 per bag of fiber which is due at the time of fiber drop off; there is NO SALES COMMISSION!  The price of the fiber is set by the seller; fiber weight and type/kind is included on the bag tags.

                   It's not to early to sign up for Workshops or a Short Courses.   REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!  Go to the Workshop webpage here to see how to register for each offering.  We keep it simple by letting you correspond with each instructor.  Any questions, just ask.  They'll be happy to help.  Please keep in mind that we have had to cancel workshops in the past when not enough folks signed up;  an early "head-count" is necessary to give the instructors the lead time they need to prepare/acquire enough materials, etc. for their classes.   Most instructors will NOT be able to take walk-ins so let your interest be known.

We are pleased to announce a return performance by Carapace Far
m Puppetry's Dancing Hands Puppet Troupe at 1 pm each day in the Children's Tent.  It's only a 20 minute performance so you don't want to miss it. The Turnip is a traditional story, told in many cultures.  It reminds us that all contributions are important, and that even small efforts can bring big results.  The puppets used are called table top or standing puppets, and they are constructed of hand made wool felt.  Check out this photo of the little old woman and the little old man who start off The Turnip story.

Our new posters are ready for you to print off your own copies for display and distribution.  We appreciate everyone's efforts to help spread the word about our festival!  You should start seeing them popping up - if you need already printed versions, contact Pam, our President (see The Organization webpage for her contact info.)    

     Our new advertising road signs have also arrived.  We're looking for volunteers to set them out about 2 weeks before the festival dates and pick them up afterwards.  If you can help, contact Pam.
