Maine Event: Tapestry of many fibers

The place to be this weekend for fans of fiber arts -- and the animals that produce the raw material -- is the 10th annual Maine Fiber Frolic at the Windsor Fairgrounds. Keepers of sheep, alpacas, llamas, goats and rabbits converged on Saturday with spinners, dyers, knitters, rug hookers and dozens of vendors. There were shearing and sheep dog herding demonstrations and a variety of workshops.
