For the past several years, I have also enjoyed attending the Kings County Fiber Festival, an annual event organized by my Brooklyn neighbor Maxcine DeGouttes. The backdrop is the historic Old Stone House of Brooklyn, located in the picturesque Park Slope neighborhood. The eighth annual event, which takes place on Saturday, October 12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., includes a variety of indie vendors, including dyers, felters, knitters, crocheters, quilters, spinners and weavers. This year’s event will also feature a talk and exhibit by crochet artist Nacinimod Deodee, moderated by textile developer Sahara Briscoe of Super String Theory Design. There will also be a collection for donations of handmade hats for the homeless.
