Knitter's Review keeps a pretty comprehensive list of fiber events here:

They've been adding 2007 events, though it'sa little confusing the way they are organized. ;)

WEEEEEEEEEEE I think I might try to go to the one in New Hampshire. It is about an 8 hour drive, but worth the trip as there is some great outlet shopping close by as well.

Thanks for the links!

Here's one for IL

http://www.suzybeggin.com/FAF.htm

Not real huge, but really good vendors are there like Nels Wiberg (Babe wheels), Mielke's, Susan's Fiber Shop, The Wool Gathers and terrific fiber farms are represented.

There are workshops and a silent auction (I got a 70's era Ashford Traddy last spring for $100)

There's another one in Colorado that you don't have listed. Dh and I were going to attend it last May, but it didn't work out. Hopefully, next year! :thumbsup:

It is the Pagosa Fiber Festival (http://www.pagosafiberfestival.com/) , May 26-27, 2007.

Well, shoot, I was going to recommend the Fleece Fair in Greencastle, IN, but looks like they're not returning next year.

Instead there will be the Fiber Event in the same location April 13th and 14th.

Not much info yet, but here's the website: www.thefiberevent.com (http://www.thefiberevent.com)
