DH, Mom and I went to Palmer today for the MatSu Fiber Festival! I have been to this festival several times over the years. Last year’s was cancelled, like much else in 2020. This year’s fest was a smaller event in many ways. There weren’t as many vendors as other years. However, there were a lot of attendees, which was good to see 🙂
Here’s one of those attendees now! Seriously, there were a lot of people. We got there right after they opened, but it filled up quickly. This picture is blurry because I was already buzzing on yarn fumes.
There were sheep, goats, and rabbits all over the place. People were demonstrating, spinning, weaving, needle felting, and one stand even had a long-arm quilting machine, which is sort of fiber related.
I wound up with a pretty good haul, mostly thanks to Coyote Trail Farm and Fiber Mill, though there are also contributions from Fiber ‘n’ Ice, K3tog, and Dancing Skies yarn. As usual, it was a pretty good time. There was a sad shortage of food trucks, I think because there was a kind of big deal of a festival (Bear Paw Festival) going on nearby. So that was a shame, but otherwise it was pretty good. Here’s hoping they build back up again next year!
