The Middle Tennessee Fiber Festival is a gathering of fiber artists, spinners, weavers, knitters, vendors, and of course sheep, from all over the South and well beyond. The Festival takes up 3 buildings and a barn at the Dickson County Fairgrounds, and is now into it’s 11th year. Joel Hurd and I spoke to Festival organizer Beth Collier of Three Creeks Farm, and well as several fascinating vendors.
