The Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival is now the Adirondack Wool and Arts Festival. This event to be held on September 23 and 24, at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Greenwich, N.Y., will continue to offer the public education on the products produced in fiber arts, raw fleece, roving, spinning supplies, needle felting, dyes, yarns, and items needed to knit, crochet and weave. The change to the title was made to represent the additions that this year’s and future festivals will include. New artisans and vendors will include pottery, body care products, healing arts, jewelry, culinary arts, craft beverage producers, leather, paper crafts, photography, printmaking, sculpture, wood arts and more.
