Fair Post 1

Just a few quick first shots of the Fair entries as I dash off to demonstrate today:

We had 279 entries in several categories: wool (fleeces), handspun yarns, products made from handspun, felted items and woven items. Both judges agreed the entries were exemplary, and they had a hard time picking from among the entries to award ribbons.

Display went easily this year: we are in a new (to us) building (Northern Mines for you locals), and had a great team and cheerful help from the fair staff. We started at 9 am Monday, and were essentially finished by 2 pm. It was easy to display such beautiful work, and we tried to highlight each piece so it could be seen and appreciated by the general public.

There will be demonstrations of spinning and weaving for the next five days of the fair. I will be there, spinning some days, weaving others. If you are nearby, come join us!

It's not fair (pun intended) that you have so many profoundly qualified entries. Okay, I'm whining.
