While Ratha lazed around yesterday, recovering in her stylish garb, I drove down the Feather River Canyon towards Chico for
The hour-and-a-half drive is about the limit of what I can handle, and it was the perfect fiber outing for me: not too many vendors to tempt my wallet, and lots of fascinating fiber animals and fiber folk.
This is the "Earth Loom" at the entrance. I love this idea and want to build one here at the farm.
The Chico Cloth folks, who are working on growing their own flax and processing it into linen, had a wonderful, interactive display.
Speaking of displays, I got some inspiration for tweaking my booth from some of the vendors there. I like the felted banner and the large, printed displays.
Some of the vendors brought a few animals. I enjoyed talking with the California Red sheep and the Shetlands. Oh, and their owners.
My favorite fiber animal was the young yak. I brought home some of her undercoat fiber to spin!
Favorite spinner/fiber animal combination!
Favorite animal I came home to after a fun fiber adventure.
