If You Can't Get Enough FiberFest . . .

I'm happy to report that our alpacas friends from LuckyGirlZ Farm in Salisbury, and their mama Nancie, will be joining us once again for FiberFest on October 11. They have been the festival's favorite attraction for the last several years.

This year FiberFest will also welcome new vendors Yarnigans (amigurumi and accessories) and and Crash Into Ewe (hand-dyed and painted yarn and roving, and other knitting goodies).

Join us on the Eastern Shore group on for futher FiberFest chat.

Needle Felted Doggie

My sister took these photos of a little needle felted terrier I made for my niece, so I thought I would share them with you. It has been vigorously played with since the photos, and now is pretty squished, and missing an eye!

FiberFest Update

I thought I would give a brief update on FiberFest planning, since I know the details of events planning are fascinating to all. Several new vendors are confirmed for this year: Upper Room Studio, The Quilting Witch, and Misty Meadows Alpacas. And The Sanguine Gryphon will be returning. Yea for FiberFest!

Anyone who would like to know more about the event can give me (Claire) a call at (410) 632-0515.

Children's Fiber Art Program

Our July Children's Fiber Art Workshop was a fun time, and we are now looking forward to the next one, on Monday, August 11 from 2-4pm. It will once again take place at the Snow Hill Library meeting room. There is sure to be more fiber art fun for kids of all ages--from pre-schoolers to preteens. The program is free, but please call Stacy at The Fine Needle at (410) 632-0772 to register so we will know how much yarn, looms, felt, roving, and glue-the-wool-on-the-sheeps to bring. See you there!
