New York (CNY) Fiber Artists and Producers, Inc. was organized to support the
efforts of individual fiber farmers and fiber artists in Central New York. The founding members came together with a
desire to form a different sort of fiber guild - one that included artists
active in all the fiber arts as well as people just raising fiber animals. We sought to foster participation in and
appreciation of the fiber arts as well as an understanding of the connection
between fiber animals and the artistry they inspire.
Fiber Artists & Producers sponsors the CNY Fiber Arts Festival, now in its 9th year at Butternut Hill Campground on Route 20 in Bouckville, NY.
The festival is the
highlight of the year for our organization. It is a weekend of fun activities
for adults and children, featuring the sale of beautiful hand-made products,
demonstrations and workshops, and interaction with farm animals. See the festival page for more information
about this exciting event.
