The EA Co-op made an appearance at this weekend’s WNY Fiber Festival, held here in East Aurora at Emery Park.
Board President Sheila Conboy and Board Member Jane Brewer manned the table Saturday, answering questions and passing out brochures. The Co-op is just shy of its next member-owner goal, which they must reach before moving on to the next step of the development process.
The Fiber Festival is a chance for locals interested in yarn, knitting, stitching, weaving and silk to gather and show off their wares. The festival featured hands-on activities, livestock and local baked goods as well. Both Conboy and Brewer are avid knitters.
