Are you a knitter, weaver or crafter…or want to become one?  Are you interested in learning about the timeless art of spinning wool into yarn?  Are you searching for that perfect unique holiday gift?  Then, come one, come all to the third annual Little York Fall Fiber Arts Festival, to be held on October 10 and 11.  This fine arts and crafts festival will be held at the Little York Pavilion in Dwyer Memorial Park at 6799 Little York Lake Road in Preble.  It will be hosted by the Board and Guild of Cortland Repertory Theatre with proceeds benefitting the theater’s seasonal expenses as well as their capital campaign for the new “CRT Downtown” facility.

The festival hours are 9:00 – 5:00 on Saturday, October 10 and 10:00 – 3:00 on Sunday, October 11. Over 30 vendors will be attending, coming from across New York State, as well as Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Vermont, Connecticut and Rhode Island. A variety of fiber products will be for sale, including yarn and knitting supplies, raw wool and roving for spinning, felting supplies and crafts, unique jewelry and pins, seasonal art, and handmade knitted items including mittens, scarves, socks, hats and shawls.  Also available will be unique gift ideas such as all-natural products including maple products, soaps, and herbal salves. Some vendors may also have their fiber animals on display including fine-wool sheep, angora rabbits, and llamas.

There is a $5.00 entrance fee.  Youth 12 years and under are admitted free of charge. The CRT Guild will have a refreshment counter available with snacks, coffee and warm beverages as well as light lunch offerings including soups and hot dogs.  Individuals attending should be aware that many vendors only accept cash or checks (not credit cards) and there is not an ATM on site.

What better way to start planning early for an exciting holiday season with one-of-a-kind gifts for your friends and family while supporting your favorite local theatre?!  For more information, call Cortland Repertory Theatre at 607-753-6161 or visit the CRT website at
