Fiberfest! returns to downtown Snow Hill this weekend

(Oct. 8, 2015) The Julia A. Purnell Museum presents FiberFest!, its annual textile arts festival, to take place on the museum grounds on Market Street in downtown Snow Hill on Saturday, Oct. 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Those who love to wear, display, or collect handcrafted items will find plenty to enjoy, with vendors offering art pieces, clothing and home décor items perfect for holiday gifts.
Fiber artists, including knitters, crocheters, quilters, weavers and spinners will find a wide array of specialty supplies. Throughout the day there will be sheep-shearing and demonstrations of dying and spinning wool for all to enjoy. Free craft activities for children round out a full day of fun.
“This festival is a yearly destination for artisans and art lovers across Delmarva,” said Dr. Cindy Byrd,
the Purnell Museum’s executive director. “They look forward to greeting old friends and seeing wonderful new crafts each year.”
The museum’s annual textile art exhibit, the Delmarva Needle Art Show & Competition, will be on display at the museum during FiberFest, and the winners of the competition will be announced during a 1 p.m. ribbon ceremony.
