Fiber Twist Fun

This past Saturday I was up bright and early for the drive to western Massachusetts and Fiber Twist.

This cozy, one day event has two dozen vendors offering a wide range of goods.

There were gorgeous spinning fibers.

These beautiful plant dyed fibers are from Woolies of Shirkshire Farm. They specialize in Coopworth wool.  Their subtle dye lot variations offer all kinds of spinning possibilities.

There were ready to wear garments.

This sleeveless wrap comes in a variety of fabrics.  A versatile, practical garment.

Colder weather is just around the corner.

Several vendors had nice selections of hats, scarves and mittens. Plenty of options to choose from.

And it's not too early to start thinking of the holidays.

Sheep ornaments and more.

There were other vendors - rug hooking wool and supplies, yarn and supplies for needlework, felted garments and decorations.  For a small event Fiber Twist brings together a diverse group of vendors.

Fiber Twist is held in the employee fitness center at the Yankee Candle flagship store.

Yankee Candle is quite the attraction.

There are candles and so much more.

The grounds are decorated for fall.

Including this pumpkin.

All 602 pounds.

It was a long day but so much fun.  Thanks to call who came out to support this event.
