Yes, it took me more than a week to get around to blogging it. You forgive me, because I have some cool stuff to share. This fiber event is worth the drive for the setting alone, never mind the drool potential at the vendor booths. Look:
but, I’ll just embed it here, so you don’t have to go looking for it. hee hee!

Please go look at their pictures, because I haven’t taken any yet. It’s lovely stuff.
At Wild Hare Fibers booth, I looked at Spinolution spinning wheels. I like that they are made in the USA, and cleverly engineered. If you look at the gallery page, the customizations add aesthetic value I mean, make ’em look so much more purtier. This one belongs to Melissa, aka wildhare, and is a Mach 1 model. In the background is the Strauch Fiber Equipment booth. I have their dbl finest motorized drum carder, and personally believe it is the best on the market.
This young lady is just learning how to treadle, and she is test spinning on a Bee travel wheel.
