The 2012 Linen Festival takes place on Saturday August 11th from 10 am to 5pm at Joybilee Farm.
This is the only Linen Festival in English Speaking North America. While it isn’t a huge event, it is a unique event that celebrates organic agriculture, homesteading, sustainable clothing, and our regional fibershed. When we started the Linen Festival 6 years ago, we hoped it would grow into an event that attracted those who like to make things with their own hands, and in tune with organic, self-reliance, and with respect for ourselves and the environment. We hoped it would be a catalyst for beautiful, fashion, that is healthy, and hard wearing — a symbol of enduring fashion — the antithesis of our throw-away, just-in-time consumer culture.
