Welcome to



Fireweed FiberFest



             A Flock to Fiber Event





Welcome to the 4th Annual Fiber Festival in Sterling, AK. This is a gathering of people interested in natural fiber arts, fiber production and the community at large.  Our goal remains the same, to bring together the best of fiber arts and fiber agriculture and to promote awareness for the general public about the fiber industry in Alaska.


We will have vendor’s booth, food booth, classes and livestock exhibits. There will be hands-on demonstrations at the booths and on the grounds. There will be beautiful and unique yarns and finished products for sale. (great time to get the materials to make your holiday presents or buy some unique presents already made)


Many educational opportunities will be on-going. Check the Events Schedule to learn what is going on and when.


Classes are offered for adults and children. Children’s classes are free, there are fees for adult classes. Please check the Class Schedule for the appropriate one for you, according to age and interest.


Fireweed FiberFest is a place for the beginner and the expert, the curious and the serious. There is NO Entrance Fee, all interested persons are welcome to join us on Sept 24 and 25,  10:00 am to 5:00 pm, at the Sterling Community Center on the corner of the Sterling Hwy and Swanson River Rd.
