The third critical leg that makes our IKS family stand are the volunteers that help our vendors (legs number one and two being our vendors and you). If you are interested in helping out with moving our vendors in, making sure they are fed throughout the day, or helping with some front table activities just drop us an email at email@example.com to let us know. We need helpers for Friday evening and all day Saturday (help out for as much or as little as you can).
Vendors will earn extra tickets for giveaways and will receive an IKS tote bag for 4 hours of volunteering.
We offer our farm fresh yarn and fiber from our Jacob, Cormo, CVM/Romeldale and longwool sheep, Angora Goats, and Angora rabbits, as well as locally grown alpaca. Natural colors and hand-dyed. We also offer hand-dyed superwash yarns. We have pelts, kits, patterns, postcards, and notecards as well.
Roving Acres Farm
By day, an elementary-school instrumental music teacher. By nights and weekends and everywhere in between, natural dyer, knitter and sheep fancier. I try to showcase small-farm yarns in a variety of breeds as often as possible.
Spencer Hill Naturally Dyed Yarn
We create hand-dyed yarn for knitters and crocheters in a beautiful array of colours, from brights to muteds, semi-solids to variegateds.
Hand Painted fine yarns and roving. Dyed in small batches to ensure high quality and consistency. I also make hand beaded stitch markers, and also hand painted yarn bowls to keep your stitches happy.
Unique Sapphire Fibre Studio
I create what I call project support. Quality project bags, fabric baskets, stitch markers, customized crochet hooks and more! I think everyone needs a little color and fun in their life. I offer quality project bags in very useful shapes and sizes and fun attractive fabrics, stitch markers (both knitting and crochet) and custom crochet hooks. I love helping to organize and protect your projects as you carry them around.
Dusty Tree provides soap & hand-dyed yarns inspired by Nature. My soaps are all palm free, vegan, naturally colored and scented with essential oils. I also offer a low suds no rinse wool wash perfect for your hand crafted creations. I micro batch domestic grown and milled yarns using professional acid dyes so that each are individual and unique.

One Sly Fox returns to IKS
Sarah has this to say
“I am a firm believer that fun and functional do not have to be mutually exclusive. Tools can be just fun and engaging as a completed project and should help inspire you and make you smile. My goal is to make quality, durable tools that are a joy to use.”
