Today I went to Fiber College in Searsport Maine as a civilian, with my friend Emily and it was FUN! We didn’t take classes, but still had a great day visiting vendors, viewing the fantastic organic gardens and hanging out at the beach…Leelee came along, dogs are welcome!
Part of the reason for having so much fun was hooking up with Ellen Mason. She is so funny and friendly and full of life. She’ll be hosting a free-with-admission dye workshop for most of the day tomorrow. Bring your yarn, or buy some from Ellen, or visit the vendors and see what they’ve got! Ellen’s dye workshop is a free-form, event-within-an-event not to be missed! Guaranteed fun.
You’ll run into all kinds of Knitteratti! We had a chat with the talented and beautiful Kristen TenDyke, who was on her way to a hula-hoop class!
There are still classes open with fantastic teachers and you can sign up when you get there, but take a look at the class list here. There are free demos besides Ellen’s all day long. Did I mention goats and alpacas?
I’m going to try and get back tomorrow or Sunday or both! …fingers crossed that I get my work done so I can!
