Oregon Flock & Fiber

Oregon Flock & Fiber was so awesome!

Here is Blair setting up the tent. I think he is putting stakes in the ground. It is just amazing to me that the lawn can go from bare grass to all these fabulous tents full of fibery goodness.

Here is most of my booth at the end of the first day. I just love all of the colors and how everything looked inside the booth. It was like having my own tiny yarn shop for the weekend. Also, an amazing thing to note is that we managed to pack every thing up in our little 2006 Toyota Corolla and I didn't even feel all that crowded!

Next to me was the wonderful Gardiner Yarn Works. Believe me her designs are even more wonderful in person. The shawl there in front is the Amethyst Wrap, which sold out on Saturday and still had people wanting more! I think I might have to knit it myself in the near future, maybe out of silky sock....mmm, ideas!

One of my good friends, Erika, had classes both days so she stopped by with her wheel and showed off her purchases both days. She is the one in the exquisite while lace shawl. I should have some news involving her and a new wonderful product for the shop in the next few days. She is here comparing notes on the same wonderful shawl with another woman across from her. They both have the same shawl, only Erika's is knit out of merino/angora and the other lady's is from her handspun.

Overall, it was a pretty successful weekend. I think I will definitely have to do it again next year! I just have to do some inventory and then everything will be posted back up on the website.

I'm happy to hear that it was great! I've been drooling over the GYW designs and petting the yarn samples I ordered from you. I'm plotting! :)

I am so jealous! I missed Black Sheep because i was having a baby, and i really wanted to go to flock and fiber, but with three little ones, it's not so easily worked into the schedule. thanks for sharing - i can experience it vicariously through you! maybe when they're older.
