The fourth annual North Jersey Fiber Arts Festival is being held the weekend of October 5-7, in Ridgewood, New Jersey. The event features workshops in a wide range of fiber arts – knitting, felting, crochet, rug hooking, dyeing and spinning, and a vendor fair.
The Campaign for Wool, which originated in the UK, has been making a splash in New York this week, to kick off its efforts in North America. The highlight of the week takes place on Thursday the 27th (yes, that’s tomorrow), whenBryant Park will be given the “full wooly” treatment. Sheep will graze, the Bryant Park Fountain will be filled with wool and the terrace will be turned in to a luxurious Wool Salon with beautiful richly colored carpet and a stunning wool bed.
If you’re in New York tomorrow, it’s a must-see. We’d love to see pictures of knitters enjoying the wooly wonderland…
