See I'm So Excited that I'm Using Caps! Ok, enough silliness. Well, the countdown to Maryland Sheep and Wool Fest has begin. 23 days! You may remember that, despite an absolutely beautiful job by
on the application, we did not get a booth this year. Not even wait-listed.
This is good news for fiber, attesting to the extreme popularity of yarn right now, but less than good news for us. However, thanks to Jolene
, talented knitwear designer new owner of Cloverhill Yarn shop in Baltimore and her pal Erin
of Mama-E's Ceyeber Fiber Warehouse, we have a golden opportunity to participate in a booth at the fest.
Jolene has invited a bunch of indie fiber artists, mostly but not all local to vend at her booth. It's a brilliant idea, as it helps us indies, but also helps her as she's only just taking over the shop. So, check out the list of happy dyers and spinners extraordinaire:
Mama-E, of course
Neighborhood Fiber Co.
Michael Sturtevant Woodworking (you must see his spindles!)
The Unique Sheep
The Sweet Sheep
A Verb For Keeping warm
Chewy Spaghetti, and
And, Steph of Loop
and I will have the pleasure of working the booth on Sunday morning from 8-1. So, please come by and say hi!
In the meantime, do check out the Countdown to Sheep and Wool blog
for cool contests and prizes!
In dragonflynews, our next shipment
is over at the Loopy
Ewe (am I a linking fool or what?) and selling fabulously. If you have a "jones" for dragonfly fiber, Gryphon is generously carrying it in her online shop
. She will aslo begin selling some of my yarns, when she gets a chance to put them up. Someday, I'll have my own site. A classmate of my usually lovely husband, Kandis Martin, is building a website for me, but actually, she's waiting for me to get my logo updated. Hopefully, my long search for a graphic artist type person has ended. I'll let you know.
Have you noticed that my etsy shop is completely empty? I'll be slowly updating that, starting today with a few skeins of sock yarn. As I dye up a storm for MDSW, I'll be adding yarns to my shop as well.
