Salomon Farm Park, 817 W. Dupont Rd.
Join us at Salomon Farm for a two-day celebration of fiber arts. With a focus on education, we will have hands-on participation and demonstrations in all of the processes of making natural fiber products – wool dyeing, spinning, weaving and more. Vendors specializing in fiber arts will sell equipment and supplies such as spinning wheels, wooden knitting needles, looms and shuttles, felting needles and forms, and crochet hooks. Natural fiber including wool, alpaca, silk and cotton, as well as hand-made fiber products such as sweaters, mittens, shawls and more will also be for sale. Visit with live sheep and alpaca! Food vendors will also be on the grounds. The Fiber Arts Celebration is co-sponsored by the Flax and Fleecers Spinning Guild of Fort Wayne and the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department. Call Eden at 260-427- 6008 for more information. Due to the nature of this event, pets are not allowed.
Dupont Road will be under construction between Coldwater Rd. and the Salomon Park entrance beginning in April. Approach the park from Lima Road. See fortwayneparks.org for details.
