Fiber Fair focuses on Lowcountry traditions this weekend
WALTERBORO — Spinning, knitting, weaving, felting and skills you may never have known about will take center stage at the Lowcountry Fiber Fair this weekend in Colleton County.
The event combines demonstrations with classes to teach skills ranging from beginning knitting to drop spinning.
“There will be vendors, demonstrations and classes to help you learn the art and skill of working with fabrics,” said Alta Mae Marvin, a Clemson University Extension agent in Colleton County. “The Fiber Fair will promote and educate people on fiber arts and products as they relate to life and agriculture.”
The first of what organizers expect to become an annual event will be from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the Colleton Museum and Farmers Market, 506 E. Washington St. in Walterboro.
Sponsored by the Colleton Museum and Farmers Market and the South Carolina Artisans Center, the fair will draw fiber artists from both Carolinas. Classes and vendors will be located at the market and downtown.
