FESTIVAL REVIEW! - Michigan Fiber Fiesta, Greenville, MI
Here are some pics of my booth setup:
Fiber Buffet - I debuted my 'Fiber Buffet' at this festival and it was a HUGE hit! I had hand dyed ingredients, as well as angelina, sari silk, and more for those that card or felt. This was a HUGE hit and I will definitely be continuing this!
Handspun Yarn - Always a conversation piece. Many questions about corespun.
Gifts and Goodies - Spindle Kits, Nuno Kits, Ornaments, and more!
Batts - Didn't sell well at this festival, unfortunately not many spinners. LOTS headed for the SHOP very soon!
All in all a good festival! I understand they are changing the weekend for next year however and it is my Birthday weekend. :( I might have to pass on this one for next year, but it was a very good time this year!!!
Private lessons are $30 per hour, with a 2 hour minimum (Can be split into 2 sessions if you prefer.) Email me to work out the details, JBenedictScott@aol.com
I specialize in spinning Bulky Singles, 2-plies, Navajo/Chain Plied, and Corespun yarns. I also can share my knowledge on needle felting, wet felting, nuno felting or weaving with a rigid heddle loom. My main area of expertise however is in fiber blending and drum carding. Please visit my etsy shop for examples of my work.
