Vendors and fiber-arts enthusiasts opened up their shops and studios to the public for the 15th annual East Mountain Fiber Farm and Studio Tour this past weekend.

Fiber Farm and Studio Tour

Ryan Jones, 9, looks at one of the alpacas at Hollywick Farms Alpacas. Owners of the farm Bill and Kathy Herman currently house 24 alpacas.

Despite the heat, visitors and shoppers trickled into shops to view items for sale at SandraSilk or to kiss an alpaca from Hollywick Farm Alpacas, to name just two of the sites and activities.

As part of the festivities, visitors were encouraged to get their brochures stamped at each location for the chance to win a grand-prize basket. The prize was available for viewing at Edgewood Yarns and Fibers.

Vendors were in great spirits and handed out cold water to shoppers as the day's temperature rose.

Next year’s Fiber Farm and Studio Tour will be June 8 and 9.
