The flocks have been fleeced, and the third annual Fiber Art Fair has begun in downtown Perry, with a daylong agenda of fiber art classes and demonstrations in an interactive and creative environment.

The Josh Davis Memorial Plaza features a wall of colorful weavings, and a number of local vendors have yarns, spinning wheels, drop spindles, woven and knit goods, fiber arts supplies and other textile goods for sale.

Fiber fun seekers can also enjoy live music and mimosa or wine at La Poste at 1219 Warford St., with freshly baked cookies and coffee at the Perry Perk coffeehouse at 1201 Warford St. The Mary Rose Collection at 1215 Warford St., standing between the two, is the artful soul of the event.

The event continues until 4 p.m. Saturday.
