Fingerlakes Fiber Festival 2016

Great weekend at Fingerlakes Fiber Festival.  Weather held out for us, forecast for Sunday was thunderstorms all day, but we lucked out. 

I packed up the van on Friday and made the 90 minute drive to the fairgrounds to set up and enter our fleeces in the Fleece Show and Sale.

Here is the booth all ready to go:

Great to see my fiber friends and make a few new ones.  I always enjoy introducing people to our soft, bouncy Shetland wool.  One of my spinning/knitting customers brought in this lovely shawl she made from Frangelico, a fawn kat ewe:

So pretty and wonderfully crafted.

I'll be at WNY Fiberfest next Saturday if the weather is fine, its outdoors at Emery Park, really nice venue.

That is a stunning shawl and what clever use of the variations in color. I love the homey look of your booth, it's very inviting and then you can wow them with that great Shetland wool and yarn!!!
