7th Annual CNY Fiber Arts Festival!
(Always the second full weekend in June)
Hours are 10 am - 5 pm both days
Spinning will be our focus!
The CNY Fiber Artists and Producers, Inc. is pleased to announce we have received some grant assistance for support of this year's annual festival. We would like to thank Farm Credit Northeast AgEnhancement for their contribution and the subsequent support of the Farm Credit East local offices in Sangerfield and Cobleskill. Farm Credit Northeast AgEnhancement supports programs, projects, and events that are intended to strengthen agriculture, commercial fishing, and the forest products sector in the Northeast. This program is a combined effort of Farm Credit East, Yankee Farm Credit, and CoBank.
The New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature have also awarded us their 2017 Community Arts Grant through the CNY Arts Decentralization program. We are also appreciative of this funding for our festival.
All monies received will be used to support our educational features which inspire adults and children, experienced craftspeople and amateurs, rural community members, and urban visitors from across the state and beyond.
As part of our festival's yearly emphasis on one of the fiber arts, we are actively seeking an expert in the fiber art of Spinning to be our special guest artist. If you are interested in this position or can suggest someone who would be of interest to our festival attendees, please send your suggestions to our President - her contact information is on the bottom of The Organization or the Contact webpages.
If you are interested in teaching a Workshop (especially related to Spinning), go to our CNY Festival / Workshops webpage to see how to submit your request. Note: Instructors must submit new requests each year.
We are looking for 1 or 2 people to oversee the 2017 Fiber & Fleece Sale. The groundwork has already been set so we expect the transition to be uneventful. If you are a fiber enthusiast who can help, contact the Festival Fiber Fleece Sale people on the Contact webpage.
