Special Happenings

This year NCFF will be offering free OFDA analysis of your fleece!
OFDA = Optical-based Fiber Diameter Analyzer

Please bring a sample of fleece, shorn or cut from the side of the animal. The sample should be 1/4″ and or longer. The longer the staple,
the more meaningful your data will be. Please, limit the number of samples to 5 per person, sheep wool only. The analysis is only available on Sunday, September 18. See schedule for demonstration times.



David is a well-known and respected restorer of spinning wheels in the Twin Cities. He restores and repairs spinning wheels and can help you with your spinning wheel problems. David plans to bring some examples of his craft and will be available to answer the questions concerning repairs or restorations. He will also bring samples and photos that will answer questions you may have about how wheels should work. He can do minor repairs on site. If he can’t fix your wheel at the festival, he is able to repair it at his home.

David will be available during vendor hours Saturday. He will be available Sunday until 2:00 pm.
