Another Madrona Fiber Arts Festival post. I am almost finished with them. Whew, quite a bit of fiber information.
In the corner of the market, I found Woolgatherings.
This booth had hand dyed bats and yarns for sale.
Hansen Crafts had a booth full of their mini-spinners.
There were a few people spinning on them in the outer area. These are really nice.
Crown Mountain Farms, from Yelm, WA was nearby.
They really had FIBER for sale.
I love how it was all named. They also had dyed fiber, in some beautiful colors.
Harmony Skin Care (email@example.com) was selling soaps and lotions.
Why would they be at a Fiber Arts Festival with soaps and lotions?
Well, if you have ever had rough spots on your fingers or hands catch on your yarn, you would know. Also, if you have put on lotion, and then picked up your knitting only to leave a grease spot on the fabric, you would know.
Sheila and Michael Ernst, of Ernst Finely Crafted Glass were selling beautiful knitting needles and buttons.
The last booth I visited was the Habu Textiles Booth. This is a company from Japan with weird yarn. By weird, I mean unique and amazing.
They had all kinds of patterns knit up from their yarns so you could see the possibilities.
That's it for Madrona 2013. There were more booths (I know! still more than what I could show here). But, I hope this gives you a taste of what you can see at even a relatively small fiber festival. Hope you enjoyed it. I sure had fun.
