Celtic festival collaborates with fiber arts guild

Posted: Thursday, May 16th, 2013

The Newport Celtic Festival & Highland Games announces its collaboration with the Yaquina Fiber Arts Guild at this year's Celtic festival happening June 7, 8 and 9 at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds.

The guild will set up a spinning circle in the indoor vendor hall, where festival patrons can witness and learn how natural fibers weave their way from the shorn sheep, having the fleece spun into yarn, and then woven into wooly wearables.

Another festival first will include sheep herding demonstrations through the festival, where Border Collies from Wolston Farm in Scio will illustrate to onlookers how they wrangle the farm's "woolie buggers" back on the ranch.
