About LFF

Lancaster Fiber Festival: A Celebration of Paper, Yarn, Fabric, & Tread!

The goal of the Lancaster Fiber Festival (LFF) is to bring paper, fabric and fiber lovers together to celebrate all things fiber. We will inspire, teach, learn, and create fiber art and wearable art together. The joy of participating in classes with nationally & regionally known teachers, helping each other find incredible resources for patterns and materials, and meeting others from across the country (and world) who love to play with the amazing variety of fibers available.
