2021 Dates, Board Member Changes, COVID Plans

  • Our dates are confirmed for the 29th Annual North Country Fiber Fair; NCFF will be held Sept. 17-18-19, 2021!
  • Many thanks for the work of outgoing board members Kerry Maas, Jeri Kurtz, Hannah Hamerl, and Shaina Scott, and a hearty welcome to new board members Amy Smith, Ava Amethyst, and Annie Mullin!
  • As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, we are hoping and planning for a physical event in 2021, yet we are also making plans for the possibility of a virtual event which could include classes and vendor promotion.

    With that in mind, Vendor Registration will open at a later date to facilitate the additional planning requirements. Look for your vendor registration postcards in late February/early March, with registration opening mid-March.

Board members needed!

North Country Fiber Fair is getting ready to start planning for September 17-19, 2021 and we are looking for some new board members to help. Being on the NCFF Board only takes a few hours a month with meetings on planning and promoting the event; no need to leave the comforts of your home for these monthly meetings since we have moved them to Zoom. Board members are asked to commit to a three-year term and are welcome to stay on longer. During the Watertown event the Board members share roles to make sure the event runs smoothly. If you know of someone who would bring some great ideas to the event or if you would like some more details on being on the North Country Fiber Fair Board feel free to reach out to any of the current board members or drop us an email at info@northcountryfiberfair.org. New Members to start at the November meeting.

Door Prizes and Raffle Items

We are so grateful to everyone who donated door prizes and to those who helped us acquire our raffle prize!

Although our event is canceled for this year, rest assured we will save those prizes for distribution at NCFF 2021.

We look forward to working with you all again in the future!

NCFF to host Virtual Fiber Circle!

NCFF is like a family reunion every year with the nicest people, enjoyable classes, and dedicated vendors in the fiber community. Like many people in this time, we continue to crave connections while social distancing.

With that in mind, although we will not be seeing you in person, we will be hosting four sessions of Virtual Fiber Circle on Friday, September 18, and Saturday, September 19. Pull up a comfortable chair, your fiber project, and your favorite tech device (computer, laptop, tablet/iPad, or smartphone), and be prepared to visit with the people you have come to see year after year as well as making new friends!

Registration is free! Simply fill out the form at https://northcountryfiberfair.org/virtual-fiber-circle-signup/

NCFF News from the Board

The North Country Fiber Fair Board has been monitoring the recent COVID-19 situation and has decided to cancel this year’s on-site event.

While we are certainly disheartened that we will not be meeting in Watertown we hope to connect with the fiber community virtually September 18th and 19th through promotion of our vendors and sponsors, along with other activities. Watch our website and social media outlets for more details.

Thank you for your support of North Country Fiber Fair and we look forward to having you join us in September of 2021!
