The Midwest Fiber & Folk Art Fair is now offering a sponsorship program to assist in the public promotion of and education about ﬁber arts.
In 6 short years the Midwest Fiber & Folk Art Fair has experienced phenomenal success, attracting over 29,000 people from 49 states and 6 countries to shop, learn, and celebrate the ﬁber and folk arts and the work of THIER hands.
Why? According to a study reported in the Wall Street Journal in 2007, the ﬁber arts are experiencing a worldwide Renaissance, and over 53 Million Americans are now knitting. This growth continues.
