2017 Thumb Fiber Festival + Workshop Retreat

November 7, 2017 - November 11, 2017


(Lexington, MI) — 2017 Thumb Fiber Festival

We are excited to host our 2nd annual Thumb Fiber Festival at Camp Cavell, located on beautiful sandy Lake Huron, 4.5 miles north of Lexington / 5.5 miles south of Port Sanilac. Offering alpaca fiber, sheep wool, & more including spinning and weaving equipment, ready made goodies and yarn to spoil your knitting friends & yourself! Camp Cavell has cabins, each with their own bathroom and private counselor’s room, availlable to spend the night and make a great fiber getaway! The camp kitchen will be in full swing cooking breakfast treats, full lunch, and more! This year we are offering a 2 1/2 day retreat preceding festival. See notes section on classes and how to register.

Join us for our first workshop retreat, preceding the Thumb Fiber Festival, November 7-9. Located at Camp Cavell Conservancy on Lake Huron. You’ll wake up to the sound of waves, have hot meals in the dining hall and spend your days feasting in the fiber knowledge available! Kick back in the evenings with new friends & music in the lodge. Head back to your heated cabins for a shower & nice night sleep! Each cabin has heat and running water – no dodging out to an outhouse here! Bring your friends, fill a cabin, and have an adult camp experience!
