Fiber Arts Festival this weekend


The Trout Lake Fiber Arts Festival will be held June 8-9 at three different locations, and one of the festival’s coordinators, Laurie Sherburne, says, “There is something for all ages and all skill levels, and it should be a lot of fun!” At the Artists’ Marketplace you will find well-tailored, hand woven clothing, socks made using a 100-year-old sock machine, felted items for your furry feline family members, and much more. Come meet the fiber artists and watch them demonstrate their weaving, spinning, and knitting skills right in their booths. Some of the participating artists include: Annie Fischer with hand woven garments from Shuttle Creek Weaving, Kira Fogarty with felted apparel and jewelry, Lori Patterson with yarns from abstract fiber, Beth Poirier with hand woven towels, napkins, table runners, and scarves; and Tom Poirier with handwoven textiles. Sack lunches will be available for purchase. An advertisement for the event also states, “Please note there is not an ATM available in the area and not all vendors have the ability to accept credit cards.” For more information, visit
