Midwest Fiber & Folk Art Fair

Well, I've been a bit distracted this week so have missed posting, but I really wanted to mention where I will be THIS WEEKEND!

The MIDWEST FIBER & FOLK ART FAIR in Crystal Lake, Illinois! It is my first 3-day show or fair and also my first strictly-fiber event! You can get more information HERE.

In preparation for the show I have been spinning almost non-stop. I have lots of new bamboo spun up (and I still don't have all done that I *want* done, but today it is time to spin some art yarns!). I also have a few corespun yarns as I just decided to try it yesterday and really liked it - so I have 3 of those, too. Also, a new Novel-Ply yarn that is just so squishy and soft! I don't have pictures yet of anything because I just don't have the time to take/edit/upload them right now. Whatever remains after the weekend will be listed next week, though.

I do have a few new ones from last week that I don't think I've shared -

Wild Birds Again - slightly different version of the Wild Birds art yarn - I have two skeins available - here is one (you can click on the picture to go to my etsy listing)

Oops, I don't have the pics of the two bamboo colors on flickr yet - so here is just a link to their etsy listings -



Well, I think that's all I have time for - it's time for me to get to my wheel! :)
