Shepherd’s Cross Presents Fiber Fest

-submitted by Shepherd’s Cross

Shepherd’s Cross is hosting the annual Fiber Fest Weekend Retreat June 18-20, from 8:30a – 3:30p each day.

This is three fun-filled days of learning how to process any kind of fiber (we teach with wool). This class combines all of our three single day workshops into one super fiber weekend. Lessons will include washing, dying, wet felting, carding, picking, spindling, spinning, needle felting and weaving. Class size is limited (minimum of two and maximum of 20) so enroll early as possible. Our classes go a step further – we teach some history of fiber arts, and practical technology. Retreats are augmented by hands-on learning tools available in the Educational Farm Museum and with a collection of fiber arts from around the world.

Retreat fee is only $179 (all three days), a $43 savings compared to taking individual classes. Any single day of the retreat is available for $74 per day. We provide all materials. No hidden fees, rental fees or materials fees. All are included in the package. Each participant will take home several finished products. We provide snacks and beverages at breaks (twice daily). You will need to bring a sack lunch each day.

Shepherd’s Cross offers these and other virtual or onsite classes year round, on an individual or group basis. Shepherd’s Cross is an accredited Agritourism facility, a Made in Oklahoma Company that processes the only Animal Welfare Approved fiber sold in the U.S. (that is chemical free, hormone free, free range, all natural). Shepherd’s Cross hosts a mini wool mill, processing the wool from their own sheep raised on site.

Registration is required. You can find information and registration form at:, click on “Classes and Retreats” or call 918-342-5911
