This past weekend Dirty Water DyeWorks was at the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival. I love all the fiber festivals, but Vermont is one of my favorites.
There are so many things to like about Vermont.
Breakfast at the diner.
Fun for the kids.
A sculpture of a moose family.
Vermont is still recovering from the recent hurricane. I didn't know what to expect but was prepared for the worst. There was evidence of flooding along the river. Homes and businesses washed out and empty. Damaged roads that had been repaired. FEMA workers in the local restaurant.
And this message posted along the White River.
We had a wet weekend at the Tunbridge Fairgrounds.
But that didn't keep people from turning out.
There were vendors inside and out. Attendees came prepared with umbrellas, rain gear and mud boots.
I had a visit from designer Becky Herrick who just released an ebook. Stop by her website for information on the ebook and her other designs. I also met Chris from Vtknitboy, an avid spinner and knitter. Check out his blog for information on bunnies, spinning and more.
As always there were so many things to see. So much creativity and inspiration.
Adorable booties from Moonlight Llamas.
There were animals of course.
And good food.
NOFA Vermont with organic pizza made fresh at the fairgrounds. They worked hard to keep up with the demand.
Vermont was wet, soggy, muddy . . . and delightful. Thanks to all who came out for this lovely event.
