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!!

Spinning at the Farm

  What a pleasure it was to meet my friends to do nothing but spin and talk about fibers for the whole day. We met at Windrush Farm on Wednesday morning and set our spinning wheels near the swimming pool. It was a great way to enjoy one of the lasts day of summer. The day was warm and beautiful, so we made sure that we had plenty of drinks near by.

This looked very promising…

Mimi has yarn hanging just about anywhere you look… Not that is unfamiliar to me.

Yes… Spinners also have to eat like the rest of the world…

My friend Mimi…

Oh, yes… we got to spin some yarn…

And feed the animals…

This fellow seemed a bit mischievous to me.

Getting ready for dinner.

I was able to spin a couple skeins of Suri Alpaca.

And got to see how Mimi and Charmaine prepare an Indigo vat.

Looking forward to our next meeting…
