2009 ArtsFest Fiber Arts Hands On Exhibit

On Saturday October 10th, 2009 I had a booth during the Hands On session of ArtsFest in Conway, Arkansas. It was an absolute blast!We set up two tables for the event. One that was full of dye and wet roving so the kids, and adults, could paint right on the wool. The other table was a sample of different types of fiber so everyone could feel the difference.The outcome of the day was 32 ounces of painted beauty! The kids did an amazing job. The roving is now set, dry, and ready to be turned into yarn.

Over the next few days, I plan to spin all of this up into yarn.
Once all of this is turned into yarn, I will post more pictures, so stay tuned. The yarn will be listed in my Etsy shop, if you are interested in purchasing any of it. It will be at a discounted price, compared to my usual yarn.

Since I ended up with much more painted wool than I thought, I may even knit a few scarves with it and list those as well. For those of you who may not knit or crochet but would love to have something out of the yarn.
ArtsFest 2009 was a blast! Thank you so much for all of you who came out and played with fiber. You totally made my day! ♥
