As promised I will show you some of the amazing vendors I found. Some are my personal friends and some are new vendors I just found.

Off The Beaded Path in Great Barrington, MA had some of the cutest, amazing felting I’ve seen in a long time. They do have a website which is undergoing construction at the moment at www.beyondthebeadedpath.com. The proprietor told me that they are working on getting that fixed as soon as possible but I did find a link for their facebook page as well if you would like to see more of their products.

One of my favorite enablers is Maine Woods Yarn and Fiber. I met Arlyne and Bob a few years ago when they were looking for a male angora to bred with their female. They have a lovely little farm in Palermo, Maine. Arlyne makes some gorgeous fiber and Bob makes all the spindles and skein-winders. I bought this spindle from their booth. They are such sweet people and I was grateful to get to visit with them for awhile.

A new vendor I found that was in love with from the beginning (due to the fact she has no fear of color) was Heather Spellman at Mad Color Fiber Arts  (formerly Sereknity yarn and fiber). I was wowed at her fearlessness!

Another place I was browsing and found  a suprise treasure was A Touch of Twist. Steve and Susan were lovely knowledgeable people. I really enjoyed talking with them and their wares were phenomenal. Here are a few items they were offering at reasonable prices that caught my eye.

And last but certainly not least I went to fleece tent. I found a great fleece from Bridge Farmin Dresden, Me. I checked out their blog and they have a lot more going on than sheep. They offer meats, organic veggies and herbs, breads and offer a CSA for locals. What a great place! The Fleece is a merino-columbia-romney cross… gorgeous!

    Don’t you just love fiber festivals? You get to meet the nicest people and they all understand and share your obsession with fiber. I remember entering a pavilion at a local Wool Fest and one of the vendors burst out laughing. She said the look on my face was a priceless mixture of awe and wonder.

      I can believe it I was like a kid in a candy store. The first fiber festival I ever went to was the Denmark Sheepfest in Denmark, Me. I picked up my first spindle there from a young boy who had taught his mother how to spin and and had graduated to a wheel. I actually bought his first spindle he had put on the used equipment table. Then I picked up some llama fiber and gorgeous dyed merino to make the hubs some socks and the rest as they say is history. I developed a great love of spinning llama.
