I am excited beyond all reason for this weekend. I'm going to SAFF, the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair in Fletcher, NC. It is heaven for fiber enthusiasts--spinners, crocheters, knitters, weavers, as well as those who raise fiber animals.
I'm going to take a spinning class on Friday and spend Saturday shopping for my birthday present from my husband. Yep, I've been given approval to buy a spinning wheel.
In honor of my trip, I thought I'd offer a few links to amazing spinning/fiber oriented websites:
Joyuna--This post has a picture of some stunningly beautiful sheep. Really.
One Crazy Fiber Lady--Nice pictures of drop spindles, as well as a beautiful wheel.
The Fiber of My Being-- The first post here shows some Newfoundland dog hair, cleaned for spinning!
The Sojourning Spinner--Love this blog that focuses on spinning with a drop spindle.
Bessybee Fiber's Blog--My goodness! The gorgeous fiber, ready to spin...
PumpkinTownPrimitives--And, this is Renee Gillespie. My husband bought my drop spindle from her a couple of years ago, along with an instructional video. I had a chance to meet her at a living history event last weekend and we exchanged phone numbers. Hopefully, we'll cross paths at SAFF!
I plan to come back with pictures of my weekend, including my new spinning wheel.
