Kali asks what my favorite fiber events are. First of all, I haven’t been to all of them yet so I cannot say that I have a favorite. And it’s kind of like picking a favorite child, they are are so unique and loved for their own special ways.
I love the Connecticut Sheep and Wool Festival because it’s small and easy to see everything in a few hours and because it’s usually the first one of the season.
I love the Massachusetts Sheep and Wool Festival because it too is close enough to go for a day trip and I get to see vendors that weren’t at the Connecticut one.
I also love the NH Sheep and Wool Festival. Again good for a day trip and there are usually lots of friends to run into.
I also love NETA Spa, Rhinebeck and Fiber Revival.
Basically I love anything to do with fiber, knitting, spinning, and hanging out with friends.
There is a really good list of most if not all of the fiber events and resources in the New England area on the NETA Blog . So definitely check that out. I am sure I could probably find something fibery to do every weekend if I had the time and money. Now if I could just win the lottery!
I am really hoping to get to Nashua’s Greely Park this Saturday for the Annual Knit in Public celebration. Anybody else going to be there?
Here is a photo of our vendor table at the Squam Lake Retreat from last weekend – the browser finally cooperated. That is Brian in the back and look at that view we had!
That reminds me I still need to take inventory to see what is left!
