Fiber Arts Decathon
Saturday, October 6, 2019, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Sheep to Shawl Tent
Are you a super crafter? Are you able to spin, knit, or crochet while reading or in the dark? Do your fiber friends tell you that you’re the fastest spinner, knitter, or crocheter they know? Come show off your skills at our Fiber Arts Decathlon! Lambtown Festival has 4 spinning, 3 knitting, and 3 crochet challenges, including speed, blindfold, and rubber glove trials, plus team spinning and an art batt spin-off! It’s free to register. While the street cred of being named the fastest crafter in the west might be reward enough for some, gift cards to some of your favorite Lambtown vendors are up for grabs for the winner of each challenge.
Registration begins Saturday, October 5, at 9 a.m. in the Sheep to Shawl Tent, where the Decathlon will take place beginning at 10 a.m. and continuing throughout the day.
