From Annual Sheep and Fiber Festival Website:

The festival, which is coordinated by Waynesburg Prosperous & Beautiful, celebrates the heritage of lamb, wool and fibers in Greene County.

The hours are 10am to 5pm with both days packed full. The festival schedule includes a juried crafts show and sale featuring vendors from throughout the northeast region, many demonstrating and selling fiber-related wares. A huge selection of fiber (fleece & yarns) and fibers arts supplies will also be plentiful for purchase from vendors. The popular fleece to shawl competition will also be staged on Saturday. This demo features several teams in a timed competition to create a finished piece of woolen apparel. Spectators see the process from the cleaning and carding of the fleeces straight from the animal, then spinning and weaving into the finished shawl, all in one quick assembly-line operation. Several spinners and weavers guilds participate, and the finished shawls are offered at auction to festival attendees.

There is also a fiber arts contest and exhibit open to the general public with various categories for knit, crochet, felt and woven articles with divisions for youth, beginners and advanced. Several free hands-on instructional classes will be offered to those registered in advance with topics such as crochet, knit and spinning. Complete details on the classes as they become available and contest entry forms can be found online at www.********.***. You can also find the rules and entry form for the popular Sheep & Fiber Photo contest online, and entry forms for craft exhibitors, as well as a complete schedule of events for the weekend.

A breed pavilion will display more than a dozen breeds and types of live sheep; alpacas and fiber breed rabbits will also be on display. Visitors will have a chance to watch live demonstrations of a professional sheep shearing and sheep-herding dogs performing their amazing talents.
