Lambtown USA

Mark your calendars!

I will be vending this year at the Dixon Fiber Festival. Boot # 65. Come and say hi and meet my products in person. This is a great opportunity to visit a great variety of vendors that offer from raw fleeces to already processed fiber, ready to be spun. There will be demonstrations, classes “sheep to shawl” competitions and more.

The Dixon Lambtown is an annual festival celebrating the rich agriculture and lamb industry of the local region.  The festival will be held at The Dixon May Fair Grounds, 655 South 1st St., Dixon. Click here for a map.  Just an hour away from San Francisco.

We are also trying to beat the Guinnese Book of World Records record for the most knitters knitting in one place at one time. So, if you are planning to attend, please bring your knitting needles and help to break the record, we need 1200 knitters to knit at the same time for 15 minutes.

I hope to see you!

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.
