Yankee Peddler Festival

The ALGONQUIN SPINNING & WEAVING GUILD, of which I am a member, demonstrates at YANKEE PEDDLER FESTIVAL in Canal Fulton, Ohio.  I was one of the demonstrators on Saturday.  We couldn't have asked for better weather.  The picture above shows our complete display of our craft.

Some of our wares.
One more weekend we will be at the YANKEE PEDDLER FESTIVAL, Sept. 22nd & 23rd.   Stop by and visit with us if you can make it to the festival.

Wool Roving:)

To my delight, when I arrived home Friday afternoon I had five boxes of wool roving....YEA!!
My intentions are to use this fiber to make woven I just have to make arrangements to pick up the loom and get started.
Upon opening the boxes to take a peek at what was inside, I think this fiber would also be great for spinning, yet I do have fiber that I've sent out and have received back that is wonderful for hand spinning.
I have yet to post it here for sale.  I need to get that done too.!
