New England Fiber Festival 2012

This is an up and coming fiber festival...and really the last one in these parts of the season....




heading in....I drove up by myself, but planned on meeting up with some people...


You first walk into a large room where the animal vendors are....I stopped by my local alpaca farm to chat with Karen....here is one of her beautiful boys...

At noon I met up with some people at Mad Color's booth.  Laura, I have known for a couple of years (and recently went on the Boston Yarn Crawl with her)  The other two are Nerd Warriors that I met for the first time!  Yeah Nerd Wars! 


Yes I am wearing my loud obnoxious granny square tunic....and can you see Wilkey peeking out from my bag?

I also met up with Amy again, but we did not get a picture....


This is Play At Life, another Nerd Warrior!!!!!  She had a booth there too....

Just some random shots of the day...I did not take a ton of pictures...








Wilkey wanted to hang out with the Moose...I said no...
W


















And what did I come home with?  I was really good!  I had ordered some yarn from Mad Color, so I picked that up, along with a contrasting color.  I got an alpaca yarn bowl, a couple of small braids of fiber for my swap partner, a couple of buttons, a new monkey bag from Jesslu and some spindles for decoration...



And thus ends my fiber festival season this year!

  2. Looks like a fun festival. It's always fun when you can meet fellow Ravelry friends especially those who play Nerd Wars

  3. Where is this festival held? Rhinebeck is a hike, but I would love to go to this next year.
