We are taking prepaid orders for advanced sales only, we will NOT have shirts available the weekend of the event.

We’ve Got Mugs!

Once again we will be offering Ozark Fiber Fling mugs – you can buy them for $9/mug at the registration table when you check in. They’re a black design on white porcelain, and we think they’re pretty neat!

Scraps for Hats is Back!!!

We have decided to continue our donated yarn contributions to “Scraps for Hats”, a private charity dedicated to raising money for mainly pediatric and women’s hemophilia support and research through handwork. Scraps for Hats takes donated scrap yarns (Even tiny bits are welcome!) and makes hats with them. From there, the hats are sold online through ebay, with the proceeds going towards hemophilia support and research. Bring you scrap yarns, even the itty bitty lengths! to this year’s Ozark Fiber Fling – we’ll have a collection box at the registration desk for you to drop them off in. From there, we’ll pass them to Scraps for Hats!

Uh oh, it’s election year!

And you know what that means? Those annoying “Are you gonna vote for me?” calls. Due to the high volume of such election year aggravations we receive, should you call us for information, don’t be surprised if we use caller I.D. or are screening our incoming calls. Just be patient and let us know who you are so we can get back to you!

We just learned that Gene Watson will be the headliner at the Meramec Music Theater Saturday, November 5th – time to plan ahead!

This means that Gene’s fans will be wanting to get in on the fun (and so might you!) and all available rooms in the area will fill fast! If you don’t get a room ahead of time, we will still have a lot of linoleum you can sleep on for free at the center, just bring a cot or a sleeping bag.

    • Hi, Kathleen, we don’t have an information packet per se, but we regularly update the site (mainly the front page) with information. We should be posting this year’s class roster sometime on September 1. We also have a facebook event page at where we also post our information, plus it’s a good way to get to know your fellow attendees. We’d love to have you!

    • Hi! Just catching up, and wanted to be sure I’d got back to you. We don’t have an information packet to send out, but all the information you need is on the site – and we’ve just opened enrollment with forms and class listings! The links to all that are on the front page now, we hope you find something that you like in this year’s class lineup!
      Thanks for contacting us!

    • Good morning, Kathy, sorry it took so long to get back to you! You need to register if you want to take classes, but if you want to show up and shop while getting to know everyone better, that’s free! (And should you change your mind and want to take a class once you arrive, you will have to register!) The registration form is now live on the front page and on the page listing the classes, and is free to download!
      Thanks for contacting us!
