Please join us and make history in Worthington Park Quilcene for the First Annual Fiber Festival: From Sheep to Shawl.
“The Quilcene Historical Museum is excited to partner with Fiber and Clay in hosting our first fiber festival – celebrating the extraordinarily diverse talents in our region. We will for the first time utilize every aspect of Worthington Park – the newly restored Victorian mansion, museum, outdoor theatre, historic barn and ten beautiful acres. There will truly be something here for everyone. Come explore!” shares Brian Cullin, Quilcene Historical Museum
Lise Solvang of Fiber and Clay adds, “The Quilcene Fiber Festival will be an Experience for All. It will take you back in time, and bring you home to today. From an 1800’s walking spinning wheel to today’s e-spinner, created locally. From a beautiful Gaelic tradition of Wool Waulking with song and cloth fulling to felting your own dryer balls. See a sheep being shorn, learn to knit, weave and felt, visit with local hand dyers, spinners, knitters and their beautiful wares. Come curious and leave inspired.”
We'll have performances, live music, a food court, workshops, animals, and many vendors on 10 acres - within the 1892 Hamilton-Worthington Mansion, large meadows, the Linger Longer Stage, near the 1915 Historic Barn and inside the Quilcene Historical Museum. Learn the history, meet today's experts and crafters, find amazing holiday gifts, bring the whole family - kids will love the hands-on workshops and live animals. It will be the most exciting and unique new Fiber Festival on the peninsula!
The festival begins at 10am, with plenty of free parking, courtesy of the Quilcene Historical Museum. Keep up with us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/quilcenefiberfestival to learn about more fun outdoor activities as we announce them.
We'll see you in Worthington Park!
