I went to North Carolina for my grandson's graduation from High School. While I was there my grandson, son and I spent a wonderful day in a barn near the South Carolina border digging through great, dirty stuff! I found this, actually Andrew spotted it for me, old spinning wheel with such beautifully turned spindles. It's very unusual, not in great shape but I had to save it. So now it's in my livingroom safe as can be.

We are holding the 21st annual Natural Fiber Fair with some new changes. It will be held at the Arcata Community Center, September 10, 11, 2011. What I have always thought was wonderful about our fiber fair is that if you don't know a thing about the fiber world, you spend a day at the fair and you will have a pretty good idea what it's all about. You have the opportunity to watch and listen for free, to learn just about anything related to fiber from how to wash a fleece to spinning and knitting. We will have our usual vendor free demonstrations on just about everything you can think of and some hour long free classes in spinning, knitting etc. This year for the first time we are offering half day and day long workshops with a great line of teachers. Look at my class schedule page for info about the line up or we have a web site, naturalfiberfair.com. Bring your projects or your spinning wheel and join the Fiber Circle. There will be plenty of knowledgeable people there to offer their help.
