It’s been a week now since I went to the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival with two friends, Chris and Diane. I didn’t take as many photos as I thought I had–or at least they didn’t turn out that great, but here are a few.
When Shannon of Kenleigh Fiber Studio asked if I wanted to share her booth I liked the idea, but I really didn’t want to drive the whole way myself. I wanted to drive straight through and I didn’t know if my back would let me do that. Diane and Chris were game, so we had a great road trip.
We left shortly after 6 a.m. on Friday. First stop:
Coffee for Diane.
We took turns driving. It’s my turn in the back seat. You can’t see the speedometer in this shot, but Chris and Diane made pretty good time!
As it turns out, Shannon and I probably could have each filled a booth. We did a pretty good job of cramming everything into one booth. Shannon raises jacob sheep also and does fabulous needle felting. Her sister makes goat milk soap and lotion which we also had in the booth.
These are a couple of Shannon’s felt bags which sold out. The Festival was packed with people and there were 150 vendors!
Diane did her part to support the vendors!
It was a great weekend and I wouldn’t mind doing it again. Read more about the event on Shannon’s blog–click on Kenleigh Acres on the right.
Next event: St. Helena Farmer’s Market in the morning and then Lambtown!
