SAFF 2007 (NC Fiber Fair) was WONDERFUL!
Well, I guess this is as good a time as any to talk about SAFF.
The Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair, which takes place in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.
http://www.saffsite.org/index.php



SAFF 2007 takes place on
Friday, October 26th, 9am to 6pm;
Saturday, October 27th 9am to 6pm; and
Sunday, October 28th, 9am to 4pm.

Admission is free on Friday.
On Saturday & Sunday the fee will be $2/person for 13 yrs. & older (no charge for 12 yrs. and under).
Tickets purchased on Saturday may be reused on Sunday.

They offer free Child Care (for toddlers & older) on Saturday & Sunday in Kids' Alley

I go every year, and always have a BLAST!
There are lots of yarn vendors, spinning displays, fiber animals, and cool classes.







Two years ago, I took "Beginning Knitting", and learned some things I didn't already know.

Last year, I took "Beginning Spinning", and learned how to make better yarn. (see me there on the back row?)

It always falls on hubby's birthday (the 27th). Last year was his 35th so we had a party and I couldn't go to SAFF. This year, I'm going to beg, whine, moan, whimper until he says I can go. And I am not above a temper tantrum If needed!

Oh Kristin, I hope you can make it! I would LOVE to meet you!

I'm trying to convince Angelia to come and take classes on dyeing!
It would be wonderful to have a group of KHers there!

Well, if it works out that you can go on Saturday, remember to join us for breakfast at IHOP at 8 AM.

i have some really great news, some not so great news, and some more great news.

the really great - I HAVE A JOB!!!! here's my unintentionally long post with the details.

the not so - i've decided that it would be best for my wallet (when i say wallet, i mean bills ) if i don't go to SAFF this year. i'll be going to the highland games in red springs the first weekend of october right after i get paid. i haven't been in a few years, and i've really missed it. i just really connect with all that stuff. ya gotta love yer history!!!
the great - now i can start saving for next year!

the more great - i've decided to start dying. everybody's gotta go sometime, right? there are some christmas presents i want to dye. hand knitting a gift is special, but dying the yarn yourself before you knit it makes it even more special. i've even got my practice yarn and kool-aid ready to go. now i just need some time alone without my mom in the house and other "must-do"s hanging over my head.
