We have an opportunity to offer our wares and demonstrate some heritage skills at a brand new, local fiber event this weekend, May 13-14th. We are thrilled to participate in the first Plateau Farmers Fiber Festival at the Buckley Hall in Buckley, WA. We hope this will become an annual opportunity for local fiber folks to share all the goods they've been creating and the fiber their animals have been growing!
We had an opportunity to sit down with the fiber focused minds that brainstormed this event and I assure you, they are working tirelessly to offer the best fiber festival they can! Really! We met up with them just this week (let the count down begin) and I was flabbergasted to hear about these ladies working for days on just a few hours sleep! PHEW!
Their labors of love led them to coordinate this fiber fest to offer an experience not found in the area. Each of these ladies keep fiber animals, from hobby flocks, on up to large herds and the closest event is the Shepherd's Extravaganza in Puyallup - several towns (and lots of traffic) away. We know a lot of knitters, crocheters and general yarn and fiber fans that yearn for a one stop shopping opportunity that is local, fibery goodness and we're pleased that this will 'fill the bill'.
So to all those in Orting, Graham, Eatonville, Sumner, Bonney Lake, Enumclaw, Buckley and more...it's here! Load the buses, haul your friends, grab your Moms and zoom on over to load up on luscious fiber, project supplies, and goodies for you and Mom!!!
(Yes, it's Mother's Day Sunday, what a perfect opportunity!)
