The Tangled Web, announced that they were running a bus trip, I jumped at the chance.
We ended up only having 4 hours, and I wished I could have had twice (or three times!) that time, but it was amazing! And completely overwhelming. So much yarny and fibery goodness, you couldn't take it all in. I ended up buying a mug, some soap, and a braid of roving and that was it.
I really wished I had bought one of these:
O, alpaca, most adorable animal ever created! Your Seuss-ical looks and your magical trilling capture my heart!
I didn't want to lug my camera around so I don't have many pictures, but next year I will. Next year I will strongarm my husband and son into going because it's a perfect event for families (even without a fiber-crazed mom). I know they will have a great time. And next year, by hook or by crook I'm going for both days! If you have the chance to go, I can't recommend the experience highly enough!
Here's a listing of all 2011 fiber festivals - maybe there's one in your area!!
