We're Not Kiddin'........................

Nope--we're not kiddin' about Kid 'n Ewe & Llamas Too--a three day conference filled with fiber happenings.  This was our first visit to the 23rd year of this festival in the small Hill Country town of Boerne, Texas.
This wheel display was advertising Mo Ranch, located west of Austin.  A place to regroup with friends and family.
The three metal buildings hosted a variety of vendors with their fiber wares.
Spun fiber, unspun fiber and completed fiber!

Colors galore with vendors from far and near.
And let's not forget the animal barns as well.
Spinning groups relaxing, chatting and treadling luscious fiber such as this silk.
Now, which one to choose?
And this vendor was very clever with their display--a salad buffet of solar dyed mohair locks.
And oh, the people you meet--willing to share and discuss their wearables--felted wool with mohair locks fringe.
And sparkly woven shawls & carded batts ready for the felting machine.
And let's not forget the ongoing classes like this back strap weaving.............
Or rigid heddle weaving........................
Or needle felting...................
Here is that felting machine working its magic......................
And you can't have a festival without ribbons--ribbons for prize fleece.............
And ribbons for finished fiber pieces.............................more later on the festival--so much to cover in such a short period of time.  Next blog we'll feature the one pot dyeing workshop we taught and the sheep to shawl competition.  See you soon........................
