We always enjoy the Middle Tennessee Fiber Festival, held this past Friday and Saturday at the Dickson County Fairgrounds. The festival offers a wide variety of classes, critters and fiber-related vendor … and just a whole big bunch of nice folks!
We’d like to share just a few snaps of wonderful goodies we snagged from new and returning vendors that we’ll be offering in the shop …
‘Whimsical’ from TrickyKnits‘ Colorful Nest line. We’ve been sold out of Tricia’s yarns for a while and are so glad to be able to handpick through her stash of lovelies. And it is always a pleasure to catch up with Tricia!
Yarn bowls from Russellville, KY ~ love having product from our neighbors in Kentucky, and thoroughly enjoyed chatting with Daniel (and a special thank you for schlepping them to the ‘slug bug’ for me)!
We found some lovely hand-dyed sock yarn (‘Glammy’) from LunabudKnits from Kentucky and purchased a small initial stocking order … come in and check it out! It is a soft and tonally dyed wool/bamboo/nylon blend that we think you will love … and it is local!
And this year we also snagged a few lovely pre-drafted artyarn braids. Abella Prieto is located in Nashville, TN (YAY!) and her booth is always full of surprises … banana fiber, Sari silks, beaded yarns, cashmeres, silks, bamboo … and she has an Etsy shop … jahtsemer.esty.com
Just for fun … glamorous wool handspun with teeny-tiny peacock feathers and a bit of sparkle! These little lovelies come from Galyna Batewell of Ethridge, TN ~ an absolutely wonderful lady to chat with!
