Loudoun Grown Expo 2015

fiber artThe annual Loudoun Grown Expo happened this weekend at Fireman’s Field in Purcellville. The hall was fill with wine makers, artisans, farmers and producers. This well attended event brings the Loudoun community together with locally made items for sale.

There was a good showing from many of the local vineyards and wineries this year, as in the past. Expo visitors were treated to wine tastings as they visited each of the local producers. It was a good chance to sample wines from a wide variety of Loudoun wineries.

Fiber artists had a strong showing this year. Not only were they displaying yarns and other materials, but also knitted goods made with their own spun yarn. You could find hats, scarves, mittens and other well made clothing accessories. The fibers were made from local sheep and alpacas.
