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!

  1. Nice display! Aren’t we so lucky to have so many fibery events in our corner of the world!
