Join us for the September Creative Mixer, celebrating the Salida Fiber Festival with the Fiber Art Exhibition at the SteamPlant. The exhibition features fiber art in its many forms, including spinning, knitting, weaving, dyeing, felting, sewing, beading, and repurposing. Entries come from local fiber artists and vendors at this year’s festival, and are both 2-D and 3-D in form.
