This two-day event, located in Steelville, Missouri at the Meramec Baptist Retreat Center, 243 Highway AA, is for anyone interested in the arts of spinning, weaving, felting, dyeing fibers and other heritage fiber-related crafts. This event is free and opened to the public to ship the vendors for supplies, tools, and finished goods, with classes offered for a modest fee.

Ozark Fiber Fling is a great opportunity to take a class and make it yourself. Classes are available for a modest fee per student per class. We encourage all of our students to pre-register to ensure a seat in the class they want to participate in. Friday’s classes start at 10:00 and end at 6:00 P.M.
