Fiber Festivals

Hi everyone! I have been searching for a resource that lists all of the Fiber Festivals in the United States and just when I thought I had a lot of work to do to create a list myself…I found this website and it’s updated for 2017!

Here is where you can find a list of fiber festivals broken down by region and date. They also have links to the festival websites (awesome!!!): http://fiddleheadfibers.com/fiber-festivals-list/

Here is where you can search for fiber festivals near you (someone pinch me): http://fiddleheadfibers.com/fiber-festivals-map/

Thank you for all the hard work, Fiddlehead Fibers!

P.S. If a spinner is reading this post, would you PLEASE read this post and let me know if you can help me find out what kind of spinning wheel this is / approximate years built/used? Or pass it along to anyone who may be able to help. Thank you!

Took a picture of this guy or gal a couple years ago at a fiber festival 🙂

What Kind of Spinning Wheel?

I bought this spinning wheel in an antique shop and am trying to find out about it. After lots of searching, I THINK it could be Turkish but I really don’t know. Is there anyone out there who could help? I’d love to know what estimated years it’s from, where it’s from, the proper name for it, etc. It is missing some parts and it would help me possibly replace them if I knew more about the piece. Thank you for your help!
