SOFA Festival Supporters and Sponsorships

Please support SOFA Fest and help us build our community!

A celebration of fiber arts in and around southeast Ohio, this one and a half day festival will host vendors, teachers, and speakers from all over the region to exchange wares and knowledge. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore different textile and artistic fibers, traditional Appalachian handcrafts such as quilting and spinning, weaving with upcycled fabric, and experiencing natural dyeing techniques. At the end of the day it's all about exploring our passion for fiber and community. 

As an organization or individual who understands the value of strengthening community around our passions, this is a wonderful opportunity for you to help others learn about and practice their own fiber crafts.

We have a fundraising goal of at least $3000. With your sponsorship, you can help provide:

  • Classroom space
  • Teacher compensation
  • Prizes for judged competitions
  • Possible Keynote Speaker
  • Much needed advertising to make this inaugural festival the best it can possibly be for southeast Ohio

In appreciation for your Wool and above levels of sponsorship, we would include your logo on all SOFA Fest web content with your provided graphic. We hope we can count on you to help make this inaugural year of SOFA Fest the first of many.
