Arts and History

The 30th annual North Country Fiber Fair will be held September 16th, 17th, and 18th at the Codington County Extension Complex in Watertown, South Dakota. Friday is for classes only. The Fiber Fair will be open to the public on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and again on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

A variety of classes will be held over the weekend on such crafts as knitting, hand spinning, felting, dyeing yarns, weaving, and crochet—there are fees associated with the classes. Many local and regional instructors will be teaching classes for the beginner, intermediate and advanced fiber art students.

The featured instructor this year is Cori Eichelberger from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Ms. Eichelberger will teach several knitting classes; when speaking of her bi-weekly podcast on her website https://irocknits.com, she states, “I try to inspire knitters to make beautiful sweaters and shawls while providing Tips and Tricks and a touch of humor.”

There will be many vendors selling supplies for knitting, hand spinning, crochet, dyeing, and weaving. Find quality yarns, books, carded fibers, exotic animal fibers, equipment, and finished products at this exclusive market. Food concessions will also be available. North Country Fiber Fair is a non-profit organization that conducts annual events to expand opportunities for fiber animal producers and consumers, as well as promoting education in all aspects of fiber production, the fiber arts, and marketing.
