TWIST FIBRE FESTIVAL

We're back from the TWIST FESTIVAL and what a great show it was.  First time in Quebec and Amelie and her crew of volunteers and supporters did a fantastic job of organizing. 
We definitely will be back next year.
We took the "WALL OF YARN" 16 feet of new colourways just for this show.
Steven had a great time too making sure everyone filled their bags of merino mill ends
The workshop with Lexi Beoger aka Plucky Fluff was a real experience, I'm not an art yarn spinner of any skill but I had fun making art batts, something I will be adding to our inventory for sure. 
The other workshops were a great success, sorry no photos of them but if any one has some they would like to forward to me I will post them.

The CASHMERE TO SHAWL was a super friendly event, not scheduled as a competition but I thought they deserved something for the effort and donated yarn to the winners voted by the public.

We met so many wonderful people that are now added to our list of friends and hope we get more chances to see them all.

If you would like to see more on the TWIST FIBRE FESTIVAL 2011 go to http://www.festivaltwist.org Amelie promised to post photos on the flickr page.
