Call for fiber artists, artisans, crafters

Apr 02, 2018

Camden — The Camden-Rockport Historical Society will host its fourth annual Fiber Faire and Crafts event Saturday, June 23, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Returning Artisans are being joined by new artists and crafters, but space remains for more artists who work in any kind of fiber, from yarn to wood.

Vendors may sell finished craft products, supplies, tools, patterns and excess “stash” for crafting fiber arts. Crafters and artisans who work with any kind of natural fiber or supplies for same are invited to participate in the outdoor event, which also showcases the 1700’s Conway House, Barn, Blacksmith shop, Sugar House and Cramer Museum. Interested vendors should contact Jan Kelsey at 975-7644 or kelseyj62@gmail.com.

This event is a fundraiser for the Historical Society. The space fee of $25 will benefit the storage, preservation and display of our textile collection. Tables are available, or vendors may bring their own. As event is outdoors, tents or awnings are recommended. Fiber enthusiasts with their own goats, sheep, llamas or alpacas are invited to bring them along, with enclosures, so the day can be a real family event.

This year, the Fiber Faire will be coupled with an open day for the museum and other buildings with a display of all early textile related tools and a display of quilts through the centuries from the late 1700s.
