Fleece Festival October 2010




Here I am at the far left with a few of the ladies that belong to the Rug Hooking Group I belong to. I should have taken more pictures of our booth. We had a lot of our rugs on display, and we had 2 classes going for those that wanted to learn Traditional Rug Hooking.



Look at these darlings!

These little guys are raised for their wool and provide us with fleece and the makings for beautiful yarns, I bought a big bag of the fleece as well as some of the rovings, which I use in my work.

Aren't the rovings beautiful ! I think I have enough to make a few pictures!!! hahahah
I already have a stash of rovings , but I got this huge bag for $5.00.... How could I resist?!?!
This Festival is held in October and this was it's second year. It has proved to be such a success it will be held for 2 days in October 2011.This event has been very successful with dozens of vendors , lots of workshops are avaiable, and the attendance has been over the top.
I am especially excited about next year as the Fibre Arts Group I belong to has been invited to have a booth next year and show and sell our work ....already my head is full of ideas.
Maybe next time I will see you
