Farm To Fiber

Life goes on, and today I'm returning to regularly scheduled blog posts.

This past weekend I made my way to Greenfield in western Massachusetts for Farm to Fiber.  It was the first time for this event which was created to replace Fiber Twist, a fall event held in the same area.

I drove out in the wee hours on Saturday morning and made my way to the Franklin County Fairgrounds.  Farm to Fiber was held in conjunction with a home show, a green fair and a tasting from local cider, beer and mead producers.  All of this combined for an event dubbed the little e, not to be confused with The Big E.

Fiber vendors set up in the Roundhouse.  Yes, it's round.  This is a view of the ceiling - tiny slats of wood around and around and around all the way to the top of the dome. 

Farm to Fiber featured a diverse mix of fiber goodness.  


Rug hooking.


Dyed fiber.

Natural colored yarn.

Vintage buttons.

From the goat's milk soap to the vibrant woven garments to the detailed rug hooking Farm to Fiber had a little bit of everything.  Not bad for a first-time event.
