I have the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival www.Shenandoahvalleyfiberfestival.com coming up on the 27th and 28th. It's fast approaching! I feel sort of ready. I've been busy dyeing fiber, and working on spindles. Here are some of the things I'll be offering.
|Extra Long Teeswater Locks on the left, beginner spindle kit on the right.|
|A wide variety of shapes and weights, drop spindles, hand made.|
|Another hand made, bottom whorl drop spindle.|
|Yarn, Teeswater fleece and long locks, hand spun|
|Merino/Tencel 50/50 hand spun 3 ply yarn|
|Just one of the hand dyed combed top available.|
I have a wide variety of stuff going, and since this is my first year, I'm very nervous for two things:
1. Will I have enough product?
2. Will I sell anything?
It's nerve-wracking for sure, but I'm just trying to go day-to-day, and have faith that all will be well. The weather is another issue I'm worrying about, but can't. Every year we've gone up there, it's beautiful weather. So I'm just going to count on the fact that it will be beautiful.
Which reminds me, I have to call the dog sitter! Yikes. We just can't leave the pups for the entire day without being able to go outside to potty and have some human time. So we pay this really wonderful dog sitter to come mid-day, and take the pups out for us. Makes us feel better.
I hope if you are in the area, and you're interested in knitting, crochet, spinning, or felting, you'll stop by the tent and give us a hello!
