Welcome to the Southern Illinois Art and Fiber Fest!

A heritage crafts and fine arts learning experience.

Here is your chance to explore your creative side.  To learn skills you may have always wanted to learn, but didn’t know where to start.  Or you may just want to dabble in something fun!  Our teachers come from near and far to bring this experience to you.  Many only teach in their own studios, or at historical events around the country.  We bring them to you for two days of learning and fun! 

Even if you don’t want to take a class, come see our vendors and activities.  We will have music during the lunch break to enjoy.

Our Locations:

Espenscheid Chapel 317 N County Road Mascoutah, IL 62258

We have expanded our location to make room for more classes.  The second location is at Scheve Park, is very close to the chapel.  

Scheve Park Harnett St & Harper Road, Mascoutah, IL 62258

Friday hours:
9:00 to 12:00
