Fall Fiber Festival Frenzy

October 5, 2009 at 10:35 am Leave a comment

After weeks of frantic preparation (many many pounds of wool dyed), the first festival of the fall season is now a pleasant memory.  This weekend Wild Hare Fiber Studio set up shop under a tent at the Fall Fiber Festival at Montpelier (http://www.fallfiberfestival.org).  Gotta share the pictures!:


Here’s the first sight people saw as they approached


Spinolution wheels to test-spin, and a baker’s rack of hand-dyed wool top and crazy blended batts.


Handspun yarns of every kind


Local Coopworth wool rovings from my friend Debbie’s ‘Forevermore Farm” — some dyed by me, others blended with silk, sparkles or other add-ins to make specialty tweeds.

FFFsuperwashbraids And in the midst of it all, a big display rack of handpainted superwash merino braids!

If you were there too, thank you so much for stopping by! If you missed this festival, never fear.  This weekend (Oct. 10th), I’ll be demonstration spinning with a limited selection of shop items at the Heritage Crafts Village in the Front Royal Festival of Leaves.  Then, on October 24th and 25th, on to another big 2-day wool festival: The Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival in Berryville, VA — a great location for folks in the DC metro area!  That web site is http://www.shenandoahvalleyfiberfest.com if you want to check it out/get directions.  I’m still working on a few new surprises for this show that weren’t at Montpelier — and if you can’t make the shows, keep an eye on my etsy shop, and I’ll be adding more new fall items all the time!
