Join us for the 2nd annual Wool Market at the Milton Farmer's Market on Saturday September 24th from 9:30-1:30.

Last year we had many vendors with beautiful hand knitted, crocheted, and woven items, handspun and hand dyed yarns, wool, alpaca and mohair roving, raw fleece, weaving kits, felting kits, and more. Heartstone Farm brought their award winning dogs and did sheep herding demonstrations, and talented artisans demonstrated spinning and weaving for visitors.

The Wool Market welcomes all kinds of spin-able fibers, from angora to flax and cotton, as well as handcrafted fiber related items like project bags, knitting needles, shawl pins, quilt batting, felted creations, etc. For more details on becoming a vendor and an application please email me at [email protected] .

Is this event repeated on a yearly basis? If so, is there a date for 2018 yet? Does this include the flax processing demonstration, or is there a separate event for that? Thank you.
