This past week was both the annual Kathy Kirchner trunk show hosted by the West Michigan Lace Group and the Michigan Fiber Fiesta. Last year, I remembered about the trunk show the day after the show (even though I'd been telling Dan about it the whole week before!) and I didn't know about the Fiber Fiesta until after it took place. So I wanted to be sure to get to both ☺ I ended up being the lucky recipient of the door prize of a $25 gift certificate to Kathy Kirchner's store/show, so I got more than I'd planned!
|My treasures from the trunk show! |
Venus thread in sizes #40 and #80, another shuttle, and more shuttle bobbins.
|My purchases from the Fiber Fiesta. |
Rectangle looms that I've been wanting and some Coopworth roving (white) and merino roving (purple).
Unfortunately, I can't find my drop spindle so I can finally teach myself to do it.
My mom and dad were watching my sister's 3 kids so we met them at the Fiesta and the kids liked looking at the fiber animals.
