A Wonderful Fiber Day

Today was a perfect day for a fiber festival!  Bill drove me to the festival and then went to some of the seminars after helping me unload all the supplies and displays.
This is a small town event , their third year for this and a nicer group of people you could never meet!  there was a constant flow of people and tons of interests for our learning.  A great family event to mark on your calendar for next year!
Marcia on the left, owner of the Alpaca farm, Breath of Heaven and on the right a new friend who is learning to spin, Dee.  Great day spent sharing spinning and knitting!
These guys were the hit of the booth, and they made the most delightful conversation all day!  I came home with a beautiful fleece from one of their herd mates!  You will be seeing more of that in the near future.
We ended the day with a great meal with a gift certificate meal!
