Watertown, SD and North Country Fiber Fair

Well the North Country Fiber Fair (NCFF) was in Watertown, SD in the middle of September. So, 6 of us ladies from the local yarn store went and set up shop. We had 6 spinning wheels, 6 ladies and 6 spinning wheels to sell plus most of the yarn shop! We had a blast! We set up the shop on Friday night and then I went to a class on core spinning, very fun. Saturday Rita (LYS Owner) and I taught beginning spinning. She taught I helped! In between teaching and being taught we worked at the booth. The other ladies did the same. We had such fun. I took a Saori Weaving class on Saturday that was AWESOME! I really enjoyed the freedom of weaving from the heart or spirit instead of from a pattern. Although, I enjoy weaving from patterns too.  I sold my rigid heddle loom to one of my friends and taught her how to weave and another friend has a rigid heddle and a table top loom that I will be helping her with. I LOVE weaving.

Here are the photos of my trip and my weavings!
