CHARLESTOWN, Ind. (WHAS11 ) -- Craft enthusiasts came out to the second annual Indiana Fiber and Music Festival at the Clark County 4-H Fairgrounds in Charlestown, Ind.

It's was a two day event featuring an array of fiber vendors, music, workshops and demonstrations. Vendors came from all around the region and include Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Ohio, Michigan, Wyoming and Georgia.

Greg and Amy Francisco, who sale their fiber and knit wares under the name of Jehovah Jirch Woolmill, came all the way from Michigan to take part in the festival.

"We wanted to find out what this was about," Greg Francisco said. "We thought this was an interesting mix of fiber and music."

On Saturday there were demonstrations on antique sock knitting, double knitting, spindle spinning, tie dying and lace making.
