FLINT (WJRT) (06/09/18) -- The 2nd annual Fiber Festival is happening today at Crossroads Village in Genesee Township.

It runs from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

There, you can watch how natural fibers can be turned into something you can wear, starting with a demonstration on shearing sheep. You’ll see how fluffy bundles of wool are dyed to perfection, spun into yarn and woven into fabric.

participants are asked to bring their own yarn to participate in World Wide Knit & Crochet in Public Day with the Flint Handmade Yarn Brigade in the Gazebo.
