Come to the Østgarðr Demo at the Kings County Fiber Festival

The Crown Province of Østgarðr comes together at the Kings County Fiber Festival! 

The Kings County Fiber Festival serves to encourage the revival of traditional fiber arts. The Festival embraces both fiber and handmade artists and resource providers that make their work possible. Hosted on the grounds of the Old Stone House of Brooklyn – originally built in 1699 as the Vechte family farm – the Kings County Fiber Festival includes crocheters, dyers, felters, knitters, quilters, spinners, and weavers, as well as artists creating design works that incorporate fiber as an integral material. 

The Society of Creative Anachronism joins this year to display elements of fiber history and recreating fiber arts from times long gone. Join us and share your love for history and fiber with members and the public alike!

If you are interested in participating, displaying, teaching a class, or camaraderie, please reach out to Catelin Straquhin for more information: 245476@members.eastkingdom.org. There is also an online Planning Meeting for the demo at 7 p.m. on 9/27/2023.

The festival is free to attend, and will be going on through the day from 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
