I must admit that this festival was so much more than my expectations – WOW! Anything and anyone fiber related was there: plants used to dye naturally, fleeces, sheep shearing demo’s, auctions, wheels, etc. It was a spinning/weaving/crafting palooza.
While the ride up was cold and damp, well, downright rainy, that Saturday and Sunday were sunny and beautiful. I learned so much about fleece quality and how to purchase fleeces, cleaning/skirting fleeces, and how it is all worked into yarn. Quite a labor of love.
All in all, it is a great festival and I am glad to have attended. A long drive for us so I may attend a closer one, like the 2016 Fall Fiber Festival held at Montpelier. Mark your calendars!
