I feel like it’s the day after a rock concert –without the headache. The Fall Spin-in at WC Mercantile in Navasota, Texas, was a rockin’ good time and a spinning success.
Although a bit tired physically, my fiber heart and soul is refreshed from being surrounded by luscious goodness of yarn and fiber, wrapped warmly in friendship and camaraderie. I have only a few photos, just tidbits of the grand day. There was so much going on, I almost forgot that I even had my camera.
Demonstrations included Kool-Aid dyeing…
… spinning from a bunny,
fiber prep with carders and different styles of combs,
and a drop spindle lesson.
There were so many wheels – new, vintage and antique.
An exciting venue was the Batt Bar, a collection of fibers to choose from and create your own fiber batt, custom carded by Petra…
…and the funds raised were donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
I did spend a little time at the refreshment table -fresh fruit and yummy cookies ‘n cakes- and also with my drop spindle while I relaxed and enjoyed watching everyone have fun.
Be sure to join us for the next one in the Spring!
