Founded through a partnership with Knit1 Oxford and the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council, the Oxford Fiber Arts Festival celebrates independent fiber artists who keep time honored crafts alive or challenge the ideas behind fiber art with new exciting works.

The event features an exhibit of fiber related works, which over the five years of the festival has ranged from historic quilts, handmade crafts works, and contemporary works. The festival kicks off with an annual welcome reception that allows attendees to meet the artists, vendors and demonstrators who offer programs throughout the festival.
This year the festival takes a new direction. Lynn Wells and Patsy Englehart of Knit1 have passed the torch to a new coordinator, Andi Bedsworth. Knit1 will remain active as part of the festival and are sharing their knowledge with Andi.
Andi Bedsworth is an instructor at the John C Campbell School, a fiber artist and costume designer. She is active in the Craftsmen’s Guild of Mississippi, the Bozarts Alliance, the Oxford Artist Guild and her own business, Art To Go.
We hope you will mark your calendars for January 2017 for the Oxford Fiber Art Festival! If you would like to learn about being a vendor at the festival, call 662-380-1940.
