Festival History


For five years, the Guild has been sponsoring an annual fiber festival open to the public.  In the past, the festivals were held at the Camden County Museum in Linn Creek, MO where our meetings were regularly.  In 2010 the Guild relocated its meetings to Harpel Chapel United Methodist Church in Osage Beach, MO in order to accommodate larger group meetings and other events. 

We have always had a fashion show in which handmade items, primarily from our    membership, are display
ed by volunteer models and members.   A judging contest with awards in a variety of categories has bee
n a highlight as well.  Many door prizes are awarded, drawn from attendance slips filled out by the general public.  We have strived to present an array of vendors which offer a variety of fiber-related products, both handmade and professionally produced.  Last year, over 150 members of the public attended the fibefest in addition to vendors and guild members.
