Great Basin Fiber Arts Fair August 22-23, 2014

 

The Great Basin Fiber Arts Fair is a non-profit pending organization that promotes fiber arts as historical and thriving art forms.  We want to share our love of fiber arts with the our community.

We are returning to the Salt Lake County Equestrian Park in South Jordan for our 5th year.  This year, the event will be held
Friday, August 22, 2014 from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday, August 23, 2014, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.


Take 11400 South off ramp from I-15 and head West approximately 3 miles. The Park is located two blocks west of Redwood Road.  A beautiful venue with an incredible view of the Wasatch and Oquirrh Mountains.  

We will be indoors again this year!!!

Our friends from the fiber community will join us to demo and teach classes.  We will have samples of knitting , spinning, crochet, felting, weaving and other fiber related arts forms. 

We will also have many vendors that help you get started with the equipment and materials you will need, once you catch the fiber arts bug! 

Fiber, crafts, demos, classes and family fun all blended together.  Join us for shopping, demonstrations, competitions, and much more!
