Hi Ho, we’re on our way to Eugene for the Black Sheep Gathering! I missed the gathering last year due to a family wedding, and i was NOT about to miss it this year…. despite ANOTHER family wedding. Sorry, cousin.
The Black Sheep Gathering is a large fiber show held every year at the Eugene fairgrounds. There will be fiber animals to see, farmers to chat with, fiber artists from every stride, from weaving to felting and more, and tons of vendors selling supplies and fibery wonderment. I plan on picking up a set of hand carders, more felting needles and maybe some roving. Most importantly: i will be picking many brains and enjoying being social with a bunch of like minded folks.
The hubs and i signed up for a natural dying workshop on Saturday and i’m entering a group of Fiber Friends into the fiber arts show. I’m so excited! I was going to enter some handspun yarn, but wasn’t up to knitting a swatch. Next year. I promise. Here are a couple of shots of my little buddies hunkering down in the car:
More photos of the gathering and my finished entry to come next week! Are you going to the gathering? I hope to see you there!
