The summer fiber festival season is upon us. First up for me: The Michigan Fiber Festival. It is one of my favorites. It’s held each year in August at the Allegan County Fairgrounds in
. That’s about half way between Allegan, Michigan Kalamazoo and . This
year, workshops start on Wednesday, August 15 and continue through Sunday,
August 19. The festival is open to the
public on Saturday and Sunday, August 18 and 19, featuring dozens and dozens of
vendors, all kinds of fiber animals, sheepdog herding demonstrations, and fleece
and fiber competitions. What could be
finer on a steamy August weekend? Grand
I’ve got confirmation that all my workshops are “a go”. And my “Beginning Spinning at the Wheel” workshop is already full. The other workshops I’m teaching include “Knitting Petoskey Stone Medallions” on Thursday, “Mechanics of Your Wheel” also on Thursday, “Spinning with Locks” on Friday, and “Slip Stitch Knitting” on Saturday. Many of the other instructor workshops are also already filled, but you can find out what’s still available at the MFF workshop page.
I just love that I’ll be teaching both spinning and knitting workshops. Here are some representative pics:
One side trip that I may take while I’m down in that part of
Michigan: MacKenzie’s Bakery in .
They make the best plain cake donuts ever! And I dream of – and drool over – their cherry
cheese coffee cake. Kalamazoo
Come one! Come all!
