Field Trip (Part 1 of 2)
We spent a wonderful Saturday at the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival in Berryville, VA.
It was a funny day weather-wise, but that didn't stop us from eating an entire bagfull of kettle corn popcorn, noshing on fresh apples and apple cider, and buying bags and bags of heavenly fiber.
I met some lovely vendors, several of whom were kind enough to allow me to photograph them with their wares.
I just love the colors and textures at these events!! It could be billed as an Extreme sensory experience!! :)
I bought some fun colors of Angelina for adding a little bling to my batts, some neon-dyed curly locks, bagsfull of multi-colored roving and 'coveted' much, much more.
The braided rug class that they offered looked really interesting, as well. The quick how-to: you braid roving and then 'full' the long braid in the washing machine and dryer...then sew it into a traditional rug shape. Very cool!
...to be continued.
