Fiber Fun Fest, a photo diary

Our 4-H Extension office plans an amazing Fiber Fair each year out at the county fairgrounds. It is a wonderful event for children and adults to learn new crafts, visit with other artisans, and purchase yarn, kits, patterns, fiber, and fabric. A variety of classes on knitting, crochet, weaving, sewing and dyeing are offered throughout the day. It is our daughter's favorite day of the year!

Yo-yo Necklace class

Sheep shearing

Cricket Looms set up in the classroom

Spinners from our local guild

I came home with some beautiful merino from the Milkweed Designs booth. I can't wait to take it "out for a spin" this week!
