Last week end was the Almont Fibrefest. I thought I would share some pictures of some of the booths at the festival. This is a post of mostly pictures and not much chat. I hope you enjoy it.
I thought I would show you want was there besides natural and hand dyed top and hand spun or hand dyed yarns. There were quilters, some are more traditional, some were applique and some were framed miniatures.
There where bead sellers and some button sellers with the most amazing buttons.
The vintage show is part of Fibrefest too. There are Cloths, hats, linen’s and jewelry form many time periods. Aberrantly in the past there were no women with full figures. I don’t know what Jane Russel was wearing. 😉 If you know who I am talking about you will be dating yourself.
There was even a lady selling nothing but lavender in every form you can think off.
And a fiber sculpture
I wouldn’t want you to think there was not fiber for spinning and felting or any finished things. Here are a couple if interesting booths.
My best find was this woman with fabulous thread in a amazing colours. There was another table of them plus a table a of large cones for long arm quilters. You may be thinking why is that so exiting? I discovered she lives only 5 min from me.
I didn’t buy any yet. I think I may have found a woman to give me a couple of free motion embroidery lessons. Then I can start an embroidery thread stash.
I was very good at the sale I only bought one thing and it only cost $3.00.
I really only wanted the black and white ones top right but it was in a $3 dollar bag. I needed the buttons to finish a hat that I will tell you about next time. That’s ok, you can never have enough buttons.
