My gears have shifted at the Mill as Ewethful is vending at the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival which is next weekend, September 22nd & 23rd with classes starting on Friday Sept 21st. This is one of my favorite festivals: lots of animals from rabbits to sheep, goats and llamas, amazing classes of fiber crafts I've never even heard of, tons of wonderful vendors, good food and all in a spot that feels agriculture based with lots of character and good vibes. And if the weather is good all the fiber-ists sit outside in circles enjoying the festival and good company. Follow the link to find out more about OFFF. http://flockandfiberfestival.com/
Now back to preparations! This is Ewethful's first year vending at this event - I've gone to classes in past years - and we have a double booth which means I need to have a lot of fiber and other good products to fill the space. I've been slowly building the stash for this, but the next week will be the final push. I'll be breaking a lot of wool top to make some beautiful colorful batts and roving in addition to lots of breed specific naturals and even some washed fleeces. Pictured above is what happens when it gets real in the mill. Fiber of all sorts and yes, even a bra has been tossed - on my behalf it was a warm day and sometimes you just have to do what you have to do. Hahaha!
Hope to see you all there! I'll be outside and always enjoy the company! If you can't make it, lots of our product is up in our website shop in limited amounts. Follow the link below to shop our site.
