Spinning, Knitting & Crochet Contests

FIBER ARTISTS JOIN THE FUN at THE 2017 WOOL FESTIVAL

Ever try spinning blindfolded? Are you a warp speed knitter or a Concours level crocheter?

Join the fun at the Taos Wool Festival Sunday in the Fiber Circle Tent

As in the past, on Sunday afternoon at the Taos Wool Festival, under the Fiber Circle tent, we will have our Spinning, Knitting and Crochet contests. Sign up is encouraged all day Saturday and until noon Sunday- at Booth #32 Ellen's wooly Wonders- so I can be sure I have enough supplies on hand.

No cost to sign up!

Winners get MAVWA Bucks, to use as cash towards purchases at the vendors booths. I will provide white roving, blindfolds and bowls to hold the roving.
