A few weeks ago when carpools full of traveling fiber-lovers came through the shop on their way to Oregon Flock & Fiber, I lamented the fact that I had to miss it; not only was I here at the store both Saturday and Sunday, but was moving to a new apartment that weekend to boot.
I didn't let myself bemoan the fact too much, however, because this weekend I am definitely going to get my fiber festival fill. Thursday night I'm heading out on a red-eye for JFK, where I'm going to meet up with two of my best friends and drive up to Rhinebeck, NY, for the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival (a.k.a. Rhinebeck)!
We made the decision to camp out back when the weather was tempting us with balmy breezes, but now with the campground already reserved I'm thinking I'd better bring some massive quantities of chunky mohair to whip up a blanket in the car...or if push comes to shove we may just have to buy an entire fleece and drape ourselves in it.
In any case, please keep in mind that Yarnia will be CLOSED this Friday, October 17th, but we will in fact be OPEN both Saturday and Sunday, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Jessica will be here holding down the fort while I'm away to serve all your yarn-mixing needs (thanks, Jessica!!).
