Ah Maryland Sheep and Wool. It’s that festival we all love and hate at the same time. SO good to see friends, pet sheep, drool over fleeces.. but NEVER enough money to buy all the pretty, yarny, shiny things we want to fill our studios and stashes!! This year was no different…
There is something special happening right now. The Journey to the Golden Fleece is a creative challenge, it’s an art journal exercise with fiber as a medium, and it’s designed to expand your internal horizons and your fiber knowledge.
These last few weeks have been a whirlwind of color and fiber and driving and oysters. It was all so much fun, it made all the months of work prepping and the hard work it takes to do a huge show.. but it’s all worth it. Especially when you get a vacation included.
The time of year we all love is upon us! SPRING!! Spring to me means fleeces, baby lambs and kids on the farms, and FESTIVALS!! Things are in crazy mode here as we begin our season in one week from today!
The Leather and Lace collection has arrived at Downtown Knits- and in Downtown Knits tradition we are going to celebrate with a gathering this weekend!!
I can’t believe a full year has passed since the first Yarnival, at the Pluckyfluff Studio in the Boeger Vineyard Orchard. July brought me back to Hangtown, and back to Boeger for the second Yarnival! And what a celebration it was!
Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival is my “new” yearly pilgrimage up to Maryland for fiber, fun and CRABS!! This is the second year my handspun and fiber were one of the featured independent artists carried in CloverHill Yarn shop.
I’m so excited to be a Sponsor of the new Creative Handspun Adventure, Spinquest! Along with Melissa Ricks (of Wild Hare Fiber) and Arlene Ciroula of Spin Artiste, we are bringing you a fun day of fiber, learning and creative fun to start the Fall season!
