Last time I showed you my booth with my 2 friends. This time I will show you some of the other things that were at Twist. Some of the things you may not see at most fiber festivals.
The national judging for the Canadian Cashmere Producers Association was at the Twist Festival this year. The fleeces were beautiful. http://www.cashmerecanada.ca/
This is Sayward Johston, she weaves and knits in wire. http://saywardjohnson.ca/
These are some baskets by Janet Whittam. She is a great textile weaver too. http://www.handweaving.ca/
This is an interactive booth. They are doing finger weaving. In this case it is called Ceinture flechee. A sash used by the Quebec Voyageurs in the 19th century to tie jackets around their waist to prevent the cold from creeping in. ceinture flechee
There was and art project going on outside the event. They were making an installation of sheep decorated with bailer twine. People were helping add the bailer twine.
And just in case your feet were giving out before your shopping was done, there was a place to get them massaged so you could continue on.
It was a fun and busy show. I didn’t have a lot of time to look around but there was a lot of fiber in all forms and tools for everyone from beginner to expert.
