I won a prize!

This morning I got an email from the headquarters of the Oakland Fiber Festival to let me know that I won a prize. Yay!!!! I totally forgot that I entered my name to participate on one the several giveaways that happened at the Festival. It was hard to pick out only one item but I decided to participate on a raffle to win a colorful skein of Feza Yarns.

My friend Megumi and I decided to drive to Oakland last Sunday to visit the Festival. We got there early enough to find a parking spot right away and no too far either. We were very glad that we didn’t lose any time trying to find a parking space. As soon as we got there, we took our time visiting each boot and started making mental lists of possible things to purchase. I notice that there were several Alpaca breeders and other interesting boots with all kinds of fiber related crafts. One place that caught my attention was a booth with a woman making bobbin lace. She was wearing a beautiful Orenburg shawl fastened with pretty butterfly pin.

I asked her if I could take pictures of her and I promised to send her the pictures.

Her table was topped with beautiful lace work…

How about a carder on a stationary bicycle? A great way to get your fiber blended… and a workout!

This group of men where very much into fiber preparation…

Color and more color!!!!

These skeins are from Pan’s Garden Yarns

More hand spun yarn…

Beautiful quilts…

We finally decided to buy a baby alpaca fleece and split it in half. Pictures will be post later…

Be content with your lot; one cannot be first in everything.
