The Heartland Fiberpalooza is a fabulous day of yarn and fiber, notions, food, classes, demonstrations, seminars, and, oh — did we mention food?

What to expect at Fiberpalooza:
  • Stroll from vendor to vendor (don’t see your favorite one on the list? Call them and send them here to register!)
  • Take a class and learn something new
  • Attend a demonstration
  • Visit the Yarnia Cafe for a delicious treat (you will be A-MAZE-D by the food!)
  • Take a break, set yourself down, and work on your project(s).
  • Shake off winter’s spider webs and spend a day with hundreds of yarn lovers!
  • Where else can you get a whole day’s worth of entertainment for just $3.00??
Here are some things to keep in mind as you plan your trip:

The date is March 17th, 2018.

The hours are 9:00 to 4:00.

The location is the same as last year, the Winterset Elementary School (you can find directions under the Directions tab, below).

The cost to get in is $3.00 at the door. Well worth it for all that will be available!

As always, please feel free to call with any questions: 515-468-8593.

You’ll want to come hungry, as Linda at Cafe Yarnia will be serving white chili, yummy croissant sandwiches, delectable salads (including that fabulous grape salad) and homemade pies, cakes, breakfast casserole and caramel rolls. Plan to take the whole day for yourself! We are anticipating even more vendors than before. We would also like to encourage you to spend some time on the Winterset Square. Of course, you’ll want to visit the new Heartland Fiber Co. building at 112 N. 1st Ave., but there are several other great shops that would will not want to miss. You can even stay and do the famous Northside Café for dinner.

Check the vendor tab for the updated list of fiber artists, some new and some you can’t wait to see again!

Winterset is conveniently located 15 minutes south of I-80 on Hwy 169 and 15 minutes west of I-35 on Highway 92. At the 4-way stop, go south into Winterset on John Wayne Drive. Stay on John Wayne Drive to West Summit, then turn right at the Y intersection. From Summit, turn right on 4th Ave. The Elementary will be on your right. Please note that these directions take you to the back side of the school where you will park and enter. If you use a GPS it will probably take you to the front of the school. Those doors will be locked, so you’ll want to drive around and enter on the west side of the building.
