Every business begins as an idea, an opportunity seen, capture, grown. Each textile or creation of a human germinates in the same way and is brought into reality by the maker or makers. Which is why The Fiber Festival of New England, co-produced by the Eastern States Exposition and the New England Sheep & Wool Growers Association, is so interesting. It’s been 7 years since the event began and each year it has grown. What makes this gathering different is it’s all indoors with the professional amenities at ESE (home to The Big E.) The timing in November is just right, too.

The company pioneered the art of 3D projection mapping and interactive real-time motion tracking in theater and extreme sports. Resulting work is exhibited worldwide.
