The festival was cosponsored by The Knitter’s Edge, a family-owned business located in nearby Bethlehem specializing in yarns for knitting, crocheting, and other fiber arts, and the Wildlands Conservancy Pool Sanctuary in Emmaus. The family-oriented event included nature activities for all ages. The conservancy grounds were a lovely setting, especially on this sunny Saturday.

There were over twenty vendors displaying their wares in a pavilion and under canvas tents. There were people spinning and weaving with beautiful colors. There were also many vendors with fibers for dyeing and spinning. Several vendors had yarn for sale. Notable was What the Flock where they displayed bright colors in many varieties. There was also some lovely, soft alpaca yarn at Shepherd Hills Alpacas.

Just a short mile away, we found Conversational Threads, an Emmaus yarn shop, which has a huge selection of yarn and knitting supplies. A day seeing beautiful fibers and yarn is always a well spent time.
