Before I get back into the Fiber Show, a few more scenes from the backroads of New England:
Besides Rug Hooking there was lots of spinning and fiber:
Then I stopped by to see Kristen Nicholas who was exhibiting here because her sheep farm, Leyden Glen Farm, is in Franklin County.
She has a Navajo-inspired afghan in this book that I would love to make - she used her Julia yarn and the colors are fabulous!
Gail Callahan, The Kangaroo Dyer, was there with her beautiful sock yarns and Heather Hall with a booth full of wonderful felted shawls, pins, and clothing. There were a number of booths displaying beautiful felted items and it inspired me to try more felting. For a small county show, I was impressed with the number and quality of the vendors there and the products they displayed. I would definitely recommend The Franklin County Fiber Twist, and you get to take a drive through the countryside of western Massachusetts and enjoy the Fall colors!
