One of the joys for many people, as they anticipate Pennsic and their annual pilgrimage, is the knowledge that they can locate any activity there, from fighting to dancing to classes on every topic imaginable. As fiber artisans, we noticed that the fiber arts lacked a home at Pennsic. Fiber classes are scattered all over the schedule, often fill quickly to overflowing, and students leave with no place to come back together and work with each other to practice their new skills. We were missing a single place where fiber people could find each other and work together on a variety of possible fiber crafts.
To fill this need, we have created a Pavilion devoted to the Fiber Arts, and available for the duration of Pennsic. Their Majesties of Atlantia have graciously created an Artisans Easement within Their Royal Encampment, where artisans are able to erect pavilions for specific Arts, and practice their crafts together every day. We have taken advantage of this location, and made it our home.
Join us in Atlantian Royal Encampment in Block N40, two blocks down from the North Gate along the Long Way toward the Parking hill. Come meet other fiber artisans, take a class, teach a class, or just bring your fiber toys over and relax with like-minded folk for a morning or afternoon. We also have fiber toys available in the pavilion, if you'd like to get acquainted with new equipment before you invest. This pavilion can be whatever you want to make it.
If you want to join the discussion before Pennsic, go to Facebook and search for the "Pennsic Fiber Arts Pavilion" group. Ask to join, and you can see what we are doing this year. We look forward to meeting you at the Pennsic Fiber Arts Pavilion. Come join us there!
