Fiber Daze in Southwest Missouri set for Sept. 21-22

The second “Fiber Daze” event in southwest Missouri is scheduled for Sept. 21-22 at Crowder College in Neosho, Mo.

According to Dr. Jodie Pennington, small ruminant educator with Lincoln University Extension, the event will feature wonderful teachers in all areas of the fiber arts.

“Folks who attend will learn to spin their own yarn, improve their knitting skills, dye different types of fibers, and take their weaving to the next level,” said Pennington.

This is a joint venture with University of Missouri Extension, Lincoln University Cooperative Extension, Crowder College Department of Agriculture, and the Fiber Folks of Southwest Missouri, a local fiber guild.

“Essentially this will be a festival exhibiting uses of fiber, primarily wool, and a craft show for fiber products. Educational programs will teach fiber art topics from spinning to crocheting,” said Pennington.
