Fiber-A-Rama-A-Go-Go

Newton's Yarns

Wow! We had a fantastic time yesterday at the Torrance Weavers Guild Festival. A bunch of us carpooled to Redondo Beach for lunch, then caravaned over to the Torrance Cultural Center for the Festival. There were lots of vendors, weaving, spinning and felting demos, a fashion show, raffles and more! My photos show the Festival better than words! It was great running into so many friends!

Lori, Julie and Carol shopping!

Steve & Cathy from Twist, Yarns of Intrigue

Funny thing about Steve and Cathy....I LOVE Cathy's shop in Manhattan Beach. I blogged about Cathy's gem of a shop at the beginning of the year. I didn't know that Steve and Cathy had been a couple since 1973! I grew up with Steve and just saw him last week at my high school reunion! Very small world!

Thanks, Susan.
I'm wearing kind of a duster-sweater thingy. I made it with yarn I bought at last year's Fiber Fest!

Fiber festival goodness. Love coming home with so much fluff.

The last picture is telling me I need a hair cut.

Oh what fun! Nothing puts a smile on your face quite like holding a new bag (or 3) of yarn!
