Kings County Fiber Festival

Kings County Fiber Festival

Brooklyn, N.Y. — Oct. 12, 2013 — Brooklyn has become synonymous with the contemporary craft movement, and the fiber arts will take center stage at the second annual Kings County Fiber Festival, held over Columbus Day weekend.

Hosted on the grounds of the historic Old Stone House — a reconstructed 1699 Dutch farmhouse at 336 3rd St. in Brooklyn — and co-sponsored by Park Slope yarn shop Stitch Therapy, the event will bring together knitters, crocheters, dyers, spinners, felters, weavers and more to celebrate both historic and contemporary approaches to the fiber arts.

Between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., there will be a marketplace with a juried selection of New York City and tri-state area artisans selling colorful hand-dyed yarn, wool roving, fleece and a variety of handmade toys, home goods and stylish winter fashion accessories. There will also be guest talks and demonstrations of fiber-related techniques and manual crafts, such as spinning and carding, and finger knitting for children. This event is a must for fiber-philes and perfect for families looking to enjoy a beautiful fall day in Brooklyn.

About Stitch Therapy:
