Old Tractors R Us Tractor Club Display
Ladies, have you come to Festival dragging a reluctant husband along with you? Men, have you come to Festival being dragged through miles of yarn and roving? Do not grumble any more because there is a tractor display that would like your attention. This year will be the 6th year that Old Tractors R-Us Tractor Club (a local tractor group) will be at Festival with a variety of tractors and activities on display for all to enjoy. Also, this year the tractors will be on display for both Saturday and Sunday! They are looking forward to meeting and greeting the many people that will attend Festival this year.

We try to have some make and take it activities available for the young budding fiber artist among us. The committee is offering two projects this year for the Kids Activities. The children will have the opportunity to either make a felted hot pad holder or a woven coaster. Check the general schedule to see when each of the projects are offered.
