Blue Ridge Fiber Fest will be held in Sparta, North Carolina on June 2 and 3, 2018.   The area of northwest North Carolina and Southwest Virginia is deeply steeped in the tradition of the fiber arts.  Set among the mountains, just a few miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway, Sparta offers a small town quaintness, not far from bigger cities and a more metropolis-like atmosphere.  

The festival will focus first upon the farmer.   Animals will be on display for their beautiful fiber, surrounded by their shepherds who can speak for them and educate a curious public.
