West Virginia Fiber Festival 


The West Virginia Fiber Festival is undergoing a reorganization and will not be held in 2016. 

We are working on putting together a new management team for 2017.

We thank everyone for their hard work and support as we move toward providing an even greater experience for our participants and guests.
