Recap of Middle TN Fiber Festival:
The festival was free, and had ample parking. We were able to park within 20 yards of the front door both days. Food was reasonably priced for fair food, and what we had wasn’t greasy (yaay!). Did require a bit of walking because the buildings were spaced out a bit, but that let you feel like you could catch your breath between vendors and not get overwhelmed by choices. Dana loved all the fresh air that the weekend provided- the fairgrounds were also very clean and bathrooms were readily available. Sheep shearing was fun to watch and they liked to be petted, and we liked how soft our hands were afterward! There was one particularly vocal sheep that was hilarious. Brittany would say the best thing overall was seeing friends! We got to see each other, got to meet a couple of listeners, ran into people we knew, and Christine came down to see us.
We really enjoyed our silk spinning class with Judy Crouch of A Twist In Time! We learned how to spin silk caps, bombyx silk, tussah silk, BFL/silk blend, throwster’s waste, silk noil, and sari silk. We really felt like the class was a good addition to our spinning repertoire and would take another class with Judy anytime we got a chance! We also enjoyed getting to take the class with our listeners, Flutterbys and EweManiac! It was wonderful getting to meet listeners in person! 🙂
