Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Festival

I am so excited about this upcoming festival. I've been reading about the Maryland event and the Vermont event on my friends' blogs and long for my own opportunity to attend something like it.

So, July 18, 19, and 20th I will be there! The title of today's post is actually a link to the festival's website. The vendor list is fantastic, there are items that I would love to have (sock blockers hand made from wood, that hanger bending exercise suggested by Lisa was an abyssmal failure on my part). I think I'd better start saving my pennies.

I am now also craving some kettle-dyed100% Merino in a monochromatic yellow. I don't know why. Perhaps because it's raining and I crave some sunshine!


Tomorrow is the last day for caption sure to give me your email address or link to your blog so I can reach you in the case that you win.

P.S. Photo is chives...lots of them. Anyone need any?


  1. I love chives! are those regular chives or garlic chives? Could you save me some seeds? Pretty please? :)

  2. I started making my own sock blockers with those thick plastic placemats, which are everywhere right now in fun summer colors and patterns. I'm a size 9. I can send you a template if you wanted.

  3. Sorry that the blockers from hangers didn't work. I love mine. I used coated black ones. I love the picture of the chives. Ours did the exact multiplication act.....

    Can't wait to hear about the festival!

  4. If you need a festival companion- let me know. I've had it bookmarked for a while now. :)

    My caption submission is "yeah, that's hilarious". Just in case you needed a silly laugh.

  5. I love chives! My grandfather had the biggest garden when I was little! We used to eat the peas/beans/tomatoes, etc right off the plant! I miss that! Take care:) (I've been in a yellow mood too!)
