Fiber artisans from Nevada County share their beautiful wares at Berkeley Hort. This annual event features an array of lovely offerings, such as Eileen Lee’s woven scarves and shawls; Sierra Mohr’s botanically dyed scarves and beautiful cashmere sweaters; Ingrid Knox’s towels, shawls, and blankets; Stephanie Ruff’s knitted baby items, hats, and cowls; and Susan Flynn’s fleeces and handspun yarn. In addition, weaver Eileen Lee talks about plant fibers and gives a spinning demo. The Buffalo Gals make the day lively with country and swing music. Most vendors accept cash or local check with ID, and some take credit cards. To learn more about local fiber artisans, read the feature story Fibershed from our summer 2014 issue. More info: here
