Carolina Fiber Fest

A few weeks ago, Ireland, Michael and I went to Raleigh for the Carolina Fiber Fest. I've been wanting to go for the past few years, but never made it. It's a semi-small festival, but still offers a good amount of fiber and things to do.


Ireland learned the basics of needle felting


And how to drop spin



Of course there were lots of pretty things to see



I bought some roving for Ireland to spin


and some yarn. It was a good day, and really got me motivated for SAFF. When we got home I booked a hotel in Fletcher, NC (near Asheville) for the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair this October. 

I really appreciate all the comments and emails about my brother. It's been a difficult time, but it will get better over time. I'm so grateful for your support and realize that none of us are on an island when it comes to heartache and troubles.

Have a great weekend.

  1. Those dryer balls sound intriguing. I wonder how they work?

  2. Just toss them in the dryer. I use at least 4 at a time and sometimes put essential oils on them to make the clothes smell good.
