MABA Maryland Alpaca and Fleece Festival 2018

MABA Alpaca and Fleece Festival

Fleece, Yarn, Crafts, and Food!

What better way to spend a November weekend? 

Come on out and visit the MABA Maryland Alpaca and Fleece Festival at the Howard County Fairgrounds – admission is FREE!

There will be a great variety of vendors, so you can be sure to stock up for all of your winter crafting needs.  The festival features a huge assortment of one-of-a-kind project supplies and high-quality fibers of all sorts.   This is the perfect place to find that special something for a holiday project or gift!

There will also be seminars and classes if you want to try something new or just hone a skill you already have.

Our booth will be in the dining hall this year, so no matter the weather, you will stay dry and comfortable when you visit us.  As usual, we will be offering hand-spun art yarns made with fleece from our herd.  There will also be cottage-milled yarns from our herd’s fleece, spun at a local mill.  Heather will have beautiful felted pieces of wearable art for sale as ready-made gifts as well.  In addition to the items for sale, we will offer live demonstrations throughout the day, including spinning and blending boards. 

Stop by and say hello!

Creating Your Own Wearable Fiber Art

Calling all fiber fanatics, creative crafters or those looking for a fun hobby!

Breezy Hill Farm will be offering a half-day workshop in which we will create felted scarves using fiber from our alpacas and other fine animals. Participants will get to choose their fiber colors and embellishments, craft it into roving/batts, and then needle felt it into a finished piece of pure beauty and softness.

This workshop is suitable for anyone seeking to expand their creative horizons!  Whether this will be an introduction or a deeper delve into working with gorgeous fiber and an appreciation for soft, lovely, wearable art, you are sure to learn and have fun. Beginner-experienced crafters are welcome!

The registration fee of $125 will cover all materials, equipment, lunch, and snacks/refreshment during the workshop.

Space is limited, so be sure to reserve your spot soon!
