Florida Fiber In Fun
We had a really good time this past weekend. The event was held in Cocoa Beach this year and it was really nice. Unfortunately, I wasn't up for walking the beach. But my "cousin-in-law" (one of DH's cousins - and my fiber buddy) said it was awesome. She said the sand was sort of a cocoa brown color. (Must be where they got the name from!)
This is a few of us hanging out in the lounge area, between demos we were interested in. Knitting, crocheting, spinning - it was great!
We had demos on Bobbin Lace, Hairpin Lace, Kumihimo Braiding on a card, Getting Published (getting patterns into mags and books), Card Weaving and making Polymer Clay Knitting Needles. A LOT of talented ladies sharing knowledge - it was pretty awesome!
I did a bit of shopping with the vendors too. I will post a picture of my goodies later.
All in all, it was a good weekend. I did over do it a bit, and came home completely exhausted. But . . . it was worth it!
PS. I forgot to mention that I taught DD to spin this weekend too! That's her at my wheel.
