Adirondack Wool & Arts Festival
Formerly Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival
Fiber Equipment Auction
Do you have a wheel, loom, or other pieces of fiber equipment in a corner collecting more dust than projects? Or maybe you are looking to upgrade or try something different. Perhaps you are a newbie looking to try a loom or wheel. This year’s Festival, in cooperation with the Southern Adirondack Fiber Producers Cooperative, is featuring an auction of used fiber related tools and toys. The auction will take place from 12-2 on Sunday and items will be available for preview during Festival hours up until the time of the auction.
• Consignments may be submitted from 12-4 on Friday and 9-12 on Saturday
• Eligible Items will be fiber equipment items only and may include wheels, looms, carders, shuttles, etc.
• Items such as needle sets, books, and other tools may be batched with a minimum bid value of $50. Batched items should be in a box or container.
