Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival :)

Silk Curls

Basket of Fiber :)
Oh my goodness! Yesterday my dear hubby and I went to the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in Canby, about 2 hours from my home. It started out beautiful and sunny here in Eugene. Half way there the rain started and it didn't stop! I had never been to the fiber fest 

so I didn't know what the heck to expect. I had sandals on and my summer crop pants and a light t-shirt. We didn't take our umbrellas...... Oh well we decided we would make the best of it. After all we were out for the adventure. 
We got there and the rain kept on.... Most of the show was in two buildings, however there was a lot outside under canopies. By the time we finished in the buildings and I had bought fiber to my hearts content. The rain started to slow:) It warmed up and so did my toes. 
The fiber was abundant and I had a wonderful time just filling my heart with the sounds and smells of fiber. I found some wonderful fiber to bring home. I bought a few things that I had never spun before. 
I have Corriedale roving, BFL/Silk, BFL/Tussah, Polwarth, Silk Curls, and Angora Bunny
I am really looking forward to spinning and learning. The Angora I bought from a young girl who had 2 bunnies one white and one grey and white, she told me about how clean she kept them and that she even blew dryed them when they got hay or VM in their fur. It's beautiful! She had it all packaged so nicely in clear box's with her card on top. $5.00 for 1 oz. Thats a lot of bunny fur!!! 
My husband was so sweet he carried my basket around for me while I shopped. He even was approached by a few unsavory women who wanted to steal him to carry their goods! I told them to back away from my man, he was taken for the day! Such a good man :)

Angela, Thanks for looking at my blog :)
I just peeked at yours and see that you went to OFFF as well. We were there in the rain on Sunday. Still had a great time!

Wow, that sounds like you had such a great time. And a great husband is priceless - I have one of those too, but they are so rare. Ha!

What classes did you take?
