Summer is just around the corner!

I can’t believe it! Where the time has gone? I just realized it after I got a friendly reminder from a client about our next SAL (Spin Along). So I started right away coming up with colors and working on my graphics. And here it is!

Summer of Love SAL

The SAL will be run at our Ravelry group. There is a designated thread, where we will post our pictures, chat a little bit, post questions, but more important, we will have fun and inspire each other. We will also combine it with the annual Tour de Fleece. This year, the Tour de Fleece starts Saturday June 29th and runs until Sunday July 21st, 2013. Yes, of course, we also have our own official group going (thanks Rachael) and so far we have a few participants already joining in our team! I still have a few spaces for our SAL listed in my Etsy shopif you are interested in join us.

Summer also comes along some with fun fiber related fairs. I will be going to Healdsburg for a small, but nicely put ANNUAL SPINNER’S DAY ON THE FARM event, organized by JoAnn Slissman and sponsored by SONOMA COUNTY FIBERTRAILS.

The setting is beautiful and last year the weather was perfect. The fair will be held on Saturday June 8th, 2013 from 10 am to 4 pm. Spinners gather under the canopies of Redwood trees and of course, being in Sonoma County, among beautiful vineyards.

The venue might be changed for future events, since the farm has been sold to a new owner, so if you have the time to visit, don’t miss this opportunity and bring your spindle or spinning wheel with you. The address is: WESTSIDE FARMS, 7097 WESTSIDE ROAD, HEALDSBURG, CA. You can google the address for directions. A pot-luck lunch will be shared.  If you feel like, please bring a dish, your own cutlery, plate, and beverages.

But it doesn’t end here when it comes to fairs. I will be also going to Yarnival from July 19th to the 21st, organized by Lexy Boeger and held at the Boeger Winery. I’m doble excited, because I also signed up for a workshop with Michelle Snowdon AKA The Wool Dancer. I will post more details about Yarnival as the time gets closer.
