The Great Outdoors

I've had two consecutive weekends of vending outside.  Having a booth outdoors can be challenging to say the least, but both weekends Mother Nature came through with dry, sunny conditions.  This past weekend I was at Coggeshall Farm for the Rhode Island Wool and Fiber Festival.

The narrow road out to the farm is full of twists and turns that hug the shoreline.  Turn off the road to a tree lined lane that leads to the farm. The setting is beautiful - so peaceful.

This event may be small, but it features a mix of vendors.

Rising Sun Earthworks was a new vendor this year.

They offer a wonderful selection of coffee mugs, yarn bowls and so much more. 

There was plenty of yarn and fiber available.

And handmade soap complete with bees.

The day included children's crafts and various demonstrations.

A display on dyeing with plants.

Some people came for the day with wheels in tow.

The spinners' tent.

As always it was great to see so many of my Rhode Island fiber friends. 

There's nothing like a beautiful day in the sun.
