Seasonal Special Happenings

Summer Fest

When: Fri., Aug. 5 2011

Who needs Anthropologie when you can make your own clothes? Fiber Café artists show you how this weekend at the Crooked River Fiber Fling, happening in venues in and around Peninsula. Tonight's events include a 6 p.m. Wearable Art Show and Sale at the Days Inn Ballroom in Richfield. Saturday and Sunday bring an array of family activities between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., including mini-workshops, make-it-and-take-it projects, and a tie-dye T-shirt station. Jump on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad Fiber Car for free demos focused on fiber. Or head to Heritage Farms and the Spicy Lamb Farm to see visiting alpacas, llamas, sheep, goats, and angora rabbits. And, of course, don't forget to shop for fiber arts objects inside the historic Boston Township Hall and the nearby G.A.R. Hall. Tickets for the fashion show are $20 (or $45 for the show and dinner) and can be purchased by calling the Art Academy at 330-657-2248.
