Great Lakes Fiber Festival

Hot - is the best way to describe this weekend. We didn't get a drop of rain which was nice - but boy was it hot! Saw some vedor friends and some return customers - always love catching up! Made a new mill contact as well. My friend Kathy drove up Saturday - we shopped while DH watched the stand - gotta love a guy like that! Nice visiting with her - and I think she single handedly helped the ecomny get back on track - if I remember correctly she made more than a few trips back to the car to unload :)
We are unpacking and packing - off to the beach for 10 days - woohoo! I have two new yarn shops to visit down there- and the outlets to browse - lots of good eats and drinks - laying in the sun - napping - spinning and knitting - does it get any better?!

Fiber Festival

Counting down the days til the sheep and fiber fest in Wooster. Love that show. Last year the weather was fabulous - hope this year is the same - but even if it's not it is still a fun time. There are more than a few buildings that have vendors in them - we are outside with the alpacas - we bring the rabbits. This is the link. My husband goes with me - we camp there and visit with the other vendors and watch the sheep judging at night. It's fun time - stop by if you can!

My motor pooped out

I purchased a drum carding motor from Nels at Babes Fiber Garden I used it about 6 times - and it went poof - done - not moving any more - ever. I wanted to throw myself on the floor and cry - I loved that thing - it made life a whole lot easier for me. I emailed Nels - no answer - I called the next day - today - and told him what happened - he is sending me a new motor in the morning :) They are very easy to deal with - that's the 2nd purchase I have made from them and won't hesitate to deal with them in the future!
