A Great Time at Fiber Christmas and Beyond

 Happy Fiber Christmas! We had a great time this year and enjoyed talking with all the visitors to the Fiber Studio. It was fun to be doing a show pretty close to home. Our next show will be Kid'n Ewe in Boerne, Texas. See the shows and links for more information. I hope to see some of the folks we met last year and some new ones. I will be sending out a coupon closer to that show so be looking for it if you are on the newsletter list. I know my newsletter offerings are few and far between but there have been no complaints about clogging email accounts. Thanks to all who sign up!

Here is a photo of Lynn, my right hand, cool head and navigator for all the shows we have been visiting this summer. The plain truth is I couldn't even get where I am going without her.

Set up is a good time to take a break and see what other vendors are up to. Here is Donna Hilton whipping  the booth for Weaving at Indian Meridian into shape.

Mary Berry of Fancy Fibers Farm showing off a new shawl kit at the entrance to her area. We were neighbors this year.

Here is Kate Lowder of Lowder Colours Farm and an organizer for the event. Beside her is Rose Brickley, Massage Therapist. I got to know Rose at the Yellow Rose show last spring. Doing a show without a massage seems unthinkable now!

There is always lots of beautiful spinning fiber and wheels of every description. Here is Lori Brown of Diamond B Sheep Farm with a cute one. I managed to sell my Lady Bug at the show too. I am so glad it has a good home. Don't worry I am not spinning deprived, there are three more wheels at home waiting for some attention but the available space issue needed some attending too.

One of the things I liked about this show was having a generous area  for visitors to sit down, try out my looms or bring their own and learn a new thing or two. This is not always an option but it was wonderful to have a spacious learning/demo area.

All this and I managed to get the month of July completed for my daily practice tapestry diary! I am ready for August.

 I will be doing a little class on the wrap bracelets in Texas next weekend. I hope to have some pictures after. When I return I am going to weave a small piece for an international tapestry project, It is very small and there is still time to send one before the end of the year.

 Also, very busy on the Mango Hunters every little minute I can spare. It is a little like coming to the end of a good book, do I really want it to end, will I find another one as good, how can I wait to see the conclusion...

Thats what I'm talking about!

More tapestry news soon...
