But we will all be there to help you with your yarn purchases! I might be a bit of an enabler.

In terms of accomodations, there are some hotels near the airport, which is pretty much across the street from the ag center (well, they're sort of catty-corner). If you can't find something in Fletcher, Arden or Asheville, Hendersonville is only about a 20 minute drive to the south. There are a number of hotels near the interstate there. You'd just hop on the highway and go up a couple of exits. Turn right, go through the lights, and just past the airport & you're there! If you want more info on that, just ask!

FYI, the airport isn't too bad. We've had issues with US Air flying from Charlotte to Asheville. (Once, we actually picked up a rental car in Charlotte & drove to Asheville & *still* got there before the plane!) Don't know about the other airlines. This is the airport's website: http://www.flyavl.com/

I'm so excited!!! A KH get-together practically in my backyard!!

When I went to Texas in May, I went through the Asheville airport. I flew Delta, and it was great. My flight actually left early, and I had no trouble at all. I loved how small it is too.

Happy to help chrislt8.

You'd enjoy the "Beginning Knitting" class there. It helped me a lot!

chris,
I would say that anyone with five works in progress is certainly not too much of a beginner to enjoy a fiber arts event.

LOL - yeah, lots on the needles but I have only completed one project - a "baby gift set" (sweater, hat, bootsies, woobie) - actually as a gift for a baby shower tomorrow!. Almost done with the first sweater though ...I picked up knitting in April and just can't seem to get enough of learning new techniques, etc

Actually - I feel pretty confident with the knitting - but I still get overwhelmed and confused with the yarn choices - just so many options and variations! Haven't reached the point yet where I can see a skein of yarn and imagine its qualities knit up. :?

Looked at the class schedule and some of them look really interesting (especially the seaming one - I need some help with finishing techniques!)

I will seriously think about this...Thanks for the "support" all

Thanks for posting this information
I am keeping my fingers that I can go, hubby is working on his master's and I am not sure if I will be able to get away! Now my son lives in Spartenburg SC maybe I can go see them and then we can go to fhe fiber fair! The baby would love the animals, my DL I don't know about! But I don't know if I would be able to take any of the spinning classes then! Decisions.

Carolina Red, You know I'll be there!! And I was going to try to hook up with you for a while since we didn't have a lot of time last year.

I thought I was the only one already thinking of SAFF this early....
