I’ve been getting ready for my last fair of the year. I can’t believe this is our third year!
It’s just getting better and better. We have a great group of artists coming to share and sell their crafts. This year Sha Sha Higby will be join us with her interesting art work. If you haven’t see her work before, please check her website. It’s pretty interesting. Here is a “small sample” of what she is about:
The fair will be held the same day as the Bolinas Craft Fair, so, if you live near by you can visit both fairs the same day and meet interesting people. There is also a great exhibition at the Bolinas Gallery going on. Plenty to see here in Bolinas. Oh, yes… Very important. We will have delicious Mexican food that my friend Jose will be cooking and offering for sale for those that are hungry.
See you soon!
We did it again! Our Second “Art by the Water” event was a success once again. The food cooked by my friend Mirta was as always, delicious. She made mole negro with chocolate sauce. Yum! And my friends and I had a great time hanging out together and with our visitors. I got to “unveiled” my latest felt work, which is always fun explaining people about the process. Thanks everyone (patrons and artists) for making this event every year more and more fun and for all your help. And now, it’s picture time…
This lamb was born the very same day of the fair!
As always, I had a great time at Mimi’s farm. It got a bit windy, and for a moment, I thought it would rain, so I started frantically looking for a safe place to hide my woollies, but luckily, it wasn’t more than a few big droplets of water.
Great pizzas from Mike the Baker…
Lots of yummy yarn from Mimi’s stash.
Of course, I came back home with a nice Corridale fleece for my felting projects. My plan is to make a furry scarf sometime this weekend. I hope I don’t forget to post pictures here…
I’m ready to start my week after being away for a few days. Yarnival was a lot of fun! The location itself was beautiful. My booth was nestled amongst pear tress and big redwoods. The weather was hot enough for me and everyone around was excited and happy to be at the event. I met several people there, some were spinners, knitters, farmers, vendors, and those that are genuinely appreciative of the work we do, but for the most important part, we all were there to have a good time.
And I’m not kidding when I say having a good time!

These masks were incredible!
This is Lexi’s Studio which was dedicated to showcase the work of several fiber artists that were featured at the fair. Some of them came from Japan specially to attend the event.
This is the famous giant skein. This is one 10.5 mile long strand of yarn comprised of individual sections spun by different spinners from around the globe. My yarn is somewhere in there!

Hopefully I’ll be able to attend again, next year.
Before heading towards Placerville…
No much time to post about the art sale that Mimi Luebbermann had at her farm last Sunday! But I have some pics to share. I had a booth there. It was nice to see friends that came from Bolinas to visit and say hi. I met some great fiber people too. We shared, laughed, eat and had a great time.

And of course I couldn’t resist getting some of Mimi’s soft roving.
Which as soon as I got home, I couldn’t wait to start spinning it.
