This weekend is the annual MatSu Fiber festival in Palmer AK, which is about an hour away from my house. Mom, DH and I went, and as usual had a pretty good time 🙂 It is still not quite back to it’s pre-COVID activity level. However, there were classes in dyeing, weaving, felting, and spinning, along with vendors and a few food trucks. It rained pretty hard most of today, but fortunately the event is held inside one of the big Ag barns at the state fairgrounds.
We got there a bit after opening time today, so it was a little quiet right when we arrived, though the crowd level steadily increased while we were there.
Some of the vendors were the same as previous years, others were new. I missed seeing some of the yarn producers from Fairbanks, but it turns out there was a big market going on up there this weekend as well. But I did manage to find some lovely yarn anyway.
The two pouches and little trees are from a lady there demonstrating weaving and selling handwoven products. The stitch markers are from a Mom and little daughter duo who had a little stand selling stitch markers, woven potholders, and project bags.
Do you have any local fiber shows or fests you like to go to?
