Shop from local vendors who will be selling carders, spinning wheels, roving, yarn, knit wear, and more. Bring your spinning wheel or knitting project, and join the spin in.

Bring a yummy dish to share at the lunch pot luck. The apple tree is full and needs to be picked, so bring a bag and take home some fresh apples.
It will be a fun day to do some shopping, spinning, knitting, and hang out with other fiber enthusiasts.

Looking forward to seeing you on the farm.

BeesyBee Fibers Wherabouts

Fall is here again and Mimi Luebberman is hosting once again her Fiber Fest! Please mark your calendar. I think this makes it the Forth Annual Fiber Fest! I will be doing a small felting demo at 1:30 pm. Bring your spinning wheel or something to knit if you wish. Is always nice to have a spinning circle there.

Forth Annual

I spent last weekend vending at the Dixon Fiber Festival.

It was hot, hot, hot. I guess I’m getting used to the cool weather of the coast. I was glad that the AC was on all the time, so it wasn’t bad at all. Well, except when it was time to go home. We drove with the sun blasting in front of us most of the way back and my old beat up truck doesn’t provide anything else other that move my precious body from one place to another without any of the amenities that newer cars can provide. Little price to pay for having so much fun. What do you think about this guy?

Rainbow Mohair

I got to see my first Teeswater ram. I was surprised at how big they are. It’s such a beautiful sheep. It was nice to meet Natalie Redding of Namaste Farm and of course I had to get some of her colorful wool that she had for sale. It will be eventually mixed with some angora that I purchased from the booth across from her.

Now I have to get ready for Mimi’s Fair and I hope that the sunshine stays put this week. See you later!!

After all it was really lamb’s day at Windrush Farm!

This lamb was born the very same day of the fair!

Lamb day

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.

Having a good old time

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…

Fall Fiber Fest

Mimi Luebberman has WindrushFarm where she grows alpacas, sheep and  goats. She is part of our knitting circle. I have posted about our visits to her farm previously and how much fun we have at the farm when we visit. She works really hard trying to promote her fiber throughout  farmers markets, and now she is organizing a day in the farm where I will be participating on selling my wool. Besides her farm, Mimi writes beautiful books about different topics. From heirloom tomatoes  to “How to grow orchids” with fabulous photography. The event will be held on the 26th of September and I really can’t wait. My friend Marlie who owns Black Mountain Artisans will be there. I will be demonstrating how to do felt. I’m a bit anxious about it, since I’m kind of a shy person.

I’m planning to spend the night before at the farm with my friend Gina and have a good time sipping wine and talking about what else? Fibers and wool! This will be my first event selling my fibers.

For more information about this event and directions go to Fiber Arts of West Marin.
