One more show to go…

And this will be my last show for the year, at the Bazaar Bizarre on December 3 and 4th at the Concourse Exhibition Center in San Francisco. Booth 177. I love that the event is for FREE. I don’t understand why people should pay to go shopping when they are trying to support crafters.

I’m cranking on the dyeing, although since this is a craft fair, I’m kind of guessing what to bring with me. It will be definitely a learning experience. I need to dye some wool locks, card batts and try to have a little bit of everything and see what will sell. In the meanwhile, I managed to spin a couple of skeins for a client in Canada.

It came out well balanced which can be a challenge when spinning single ply yarns.

Well, this is the time of the year when we get to stop and be thankful for what we have and who we are. I want to thank my family, my wonderful and loving husband, my dear friends (Yes you! I know you are snooping), my great costumers that supported my shop for another year, my aches pains and, because of your gentle way of reminding me to slow down, and for being able to breath every day which I consider to be these days a privilege.

Third Annual Fiber Fest, Sunday October 16

Save the date! Sunday October 16th. I can’t believe a year has passed since we celebrated our Second Annual Fiber Fest. I will be participating again as a vendor at Windrush Farm with my hand dyed fiber. Mimi has lined up some demonstrations regarding fiber processing and I will be taking part in doing a mini demonstration on felting.

I hope you can visit, bring your spinning wheel and don’t forget to grab a hat, because it can get warm during the day. Marlie de Swart will be there representing Black Mountain Artisans, Charmaine Krieger will be selling her naturally dyed handspun yarn and will be doing a demo on natural dyeing. If you haven’t visited the area, you will be greeted by beautiful rolling hills and impressive scenery that surrounds Windrush Farm. It’s really a treat for the eyes and nourishing to the senses. Looking forward to seeing you there!

From Pt Reyes Station

Take the Petaluma-Pt Reyes Rd and after the Marin Cheese Factory turn left onto Hicks Valley Road.  At the Petaluma-Marshall Road, turn right towards Petaluma.  Go up the big hill, come down, and at the intersection where Chileno Valley goes left, GO STRAIGHT.  Cross the narrow bridge, and immediately turn right into the driveway of 2263 Chileno Valley Road.  The intersection is confusing, but Chileno Valley also continues straight, hence, do not turn left.
