June…no wait…October IKS!

Let’s try this one…more…time!
Spring is here and we were all looking forward to IKS coming soon, however after speaking with our venue, we all could not guarantee that we could be confident in our June date (as indoor gatherings are still very limited in PA and we all want you to have a fabulous show).  As a result we have shifted our IKS date to October 9th (there will be no IKS in June this year).
This was a very hard decision, but we are certain this is the best decision for the safety and success of our vendors and our attendees.

Yes, vaccines are being deployed, and yes, PA has been able to open a little more, however numbers are on the rise again (we are still at more daily cases than when the entire state shut down at the beginning of the pandemic) and the vaccine roll out is not fast enough for us to feel certain with the June date.

Since our new venue is huge, we still have spots available, so we will be opening applications for October.  Vendors who previously applied are still accepted for October, however we want to make the comeback of the fiber festival scene huge, so let your friends and favorite vendors know!

Apply here

I thank you all for your patience and understanding with this craziness, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel and many fluffy things await!  Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Dusty Tree

Dusty Tree provides soap & hand-dyed yarns inspired by Nature. My soaps are all palm oil free, plant based and handcrafted in small batches using natural colorants and essential oils. I also make a low suds no rinse wool wash perfect for your hand crafted creations. The yarns I offer are all dyed in micro batches using professional grade acid dyes with many of the bases being non superwash. I like to dye colorways that are more muted and darker in tone so that they can be worked together in projects. dustytree & dustytreeworks on IG
