Come Celebrate the Work of Your Hands! Join us next summer for the 8th Annual Midwest Fiber & Folk Art Fair and SEIZE THE DAY!

  • Treat yourself to a Workshop
  • Wander through the Marketplace
  • Experience the Demonstrations
  • Be inspired by the Exhibits
  • Enjoy the Music
  • Relax and work on your projects with us (or enjoy your new stuff).

You could spend a whole see, we believe a fair should fuel ALL your passions and ignite ALL your senses.


Logon to your account and PRINT your passes! We cannot accept phone or device passes, we must have a paper copy.

Workshop Check In (for morning and all day classes ONLY) opens at 9:15 through the left doors in the lobby. Please give yourself 5-10 extra minutes to park and get to the lobby.

Afternoon students, you cannot get into the Fair earlier than 10am, so we ask that you wait until that time to check in. That will help the morning students get to class. Check in will be open until 10:30 am or come back and check in between 1 and 2 pm. You can use your pass at admissions, if you wish.
