I’m back from an extremely fun and exciting weekend vending at the PEI Crafts Council 49th Annual Christmas Craft Fair. What an experience! So many wonderful people, talented artists, and great conversations. My handspun yarns also found lots of happy new homes.
Part of the fun this weekend was all the spinners and weavers that I had the pleasure of making acquaintance with. Spinning wheels a-whirring was a frequent and welcome sight and it was really wonderful to get to talk fiber with other fiber lovers. Between meeting all of these amazing women and all the excited chats about fiber, I did squeeze quite a bit of time for spinning. I started AND finished my Finnish Fiber Sampler from Woolgatherings this weekend. And what goes better with some yummy new handspun than a really fabulous new yarn bowl? I picked up this little gem at the Village Pottery stand and am putting it to very good use already. 🙂
This week I’ll be busy preparing for the One Month To Christmas Artist Sale in Orwell. So if you’re looking for some fun handspun, stop by MacPhail Homestead from 12 – 5 on Sunday, November 17th!
