FESTIVAL REVIEW! - Michigan Fiber Fiesta, Greenville, MI

I had only 3 weeks to prepare for the festival, as I got in due to a last minute cancellation BUT I think I did pretty well! It was a very fun festival, but not too many buyers. I had a great time talking about drum carding, doing demos, and instructing some brave souls that decided to try it out in front of the group.

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!!!

I really wanted to buy a few of the batts but they were out of my price range.

Private Lessons

If you are local to the Muskegon, MI area and in need of Spinning, Weaving, Felting, or Drum Carding instruction I would be more than happy to help!

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,

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.
