Us at SMFAF!

We had an absolute blast!  We loved the fact that there was free admission, parking was convenient, etc.  It definitely looked like all of the vendor spaces were fullthe mark of a successful festival, in our opinion!  There were lots of natural-colored fibers as well as dyed ones, and many varieties of handdyed yarns, weaving yarns, knitting tools, looms, a wheel or two, and some spindles. 

What Brittany got:  KnittyandColor Polwarth in Minerva, KnittyandColor Merino/Silk in Mare Vitalis, Gale’s Art BFL in Limited Edition (green), Gale’s Art BFL Swirl in Crayon Box

What Dana got: KnittyandColor Falkland in Stormfront, KnittyandColor art batt in Changeling, Gale’s Art show special minibatt, Trindle spindle


Dana's Trindle with singles from the Gale's Art batt

While in Gatlinburg, we went to The Best Italian Restaurant and had a wonderful meal, and visited Smoky Mountain Spinnery.  What a fabulous store!  We really loved the selection of fiber and spinning products, and Nancy was so nice to us.  We highly recommend this shop!

What Dana got: fast whorl for her Suzie spinning wheel, 6mm ehook flyer guide for her Little Gem II, Bluster Bay poke shuttle to use with her Kromski loom

If I Was A Rich Girl:

Brittany: sparkly art batt from KnittyandColor

Dana: more Trindle arms
