I promised in my first post to tell you more about upcoming events. This Saturday, May 22nd, will be the first annual Acadia Fiber Faire in Southwest Harbor, Maine. The show starts off with a bang on Friday evening with an opening reception with keynote speaker Linda Cortright of "Wild Fibers" magazine. Her presentation is entitled: "Living with Cashmere in the high Himalayas". During the day of the fair, there will be lots to see and do including classes (I will be teaching a class on spinning on a drop spindle!), shopping with the vendors (Purple Fleece will be there along with Knitting Out Loud, Village Books, and many others!), activities for kids, demonstrations, etc. Southwest Harbor is located on beautiful Mt. Desert Island. Hope to see you this Saturday.
