FIBER ENTHUSIASTS INVITED TO MEET AT

THE NEW ENGLAND FIBER FESTIVAL

November 6 & 7, 2010 on the grounds of Eastern States Exposition

West Springfield, MA

The New England Sheep & Wool Growers and Eastern States Exposition announce the establishment of "THE Fiber Festival of New England", to be held November 6 & 7, 2010, in the Mallary Complex on the grounds of Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, Mass.

Fiber and fiber related vendors are invited to apply for vendor space at this juried show. Applications are available for download at the New England Sheep and Wool Growers Association’s website, www.nesheep.org, and Eastern States Exposition’s site, www.TheBigE.com. Early application deadline has been extended to May 1, 2010 due to overwhelming demand!.

After several years of requests for an event bringing vendors and fiber enthusiasts together, the New England Sheep & Wool Growers Association and Eastern States Exposition developed the Festival which is expected to draw visitors from all of New England. The feedback from contacted vendors has been positive. One vendor remarked, "After over twenty years in this business, this new venue provides a great opportunity to more directly market our products in the New England area."

The Mallary Complex at Eastern States Exposition is one of the larger facilities on the grounds and will accommodate the entire Festival under one roof. The building is heated, has large restroom facilities and will include food vendors inside the building. Parking is adjacent to the complex and represents a short trip out to the car to offload those many bags of fiber.
