The weather couldn't have been more perfect at the Acadia Fiber Faire on Saturday. I taught a drop spindle class and my four students did very well. They all caught on quickly and, as a result, we have 4 new spinners in the fiber universe. I teach quite a few different classes at the various fiber fairs. At Fiber Frolic on June 5th and 6th, I will be teaching 3 classes: "Spinning 101" (an introduction to spinning on a wheel), "Carding Basics and Tricks" (everything you always wanted to know about hand carders), and another "Drop Spindling" class.
There were about 2 dozen vendors in the gymnasium at the Pemetic Elementary School selling fibers, kits, baskets, books, audiobooks, spinning wheels, etc. Here are some of my favorities:
