We went to the 3rd annual Diamond State Fiber Festival in Greenwood, AR this year for our October Yarn Dolls meeting. Judy and I went together to it but didn’t see anyone from the Yarn Dolls group there. :( I hope we didn’t miss anyone if they went to this.
Here are some photos from the Guesthouse Inn in Fort Smith, AR that we stayed at while we were there:
Our room was on the 2nd floor and I just thought the hallway was cool looking. I’m not sure why one direction had different lighting than the other. Weird huh. :)
Next are photos of the venders that were at the festival:
These next photos are from the Beginner Spinning class I took:
The next photos are from the Kool Aid dyeing class that Judy & I took:
The next photos are of the yarn I spun & the yarn I dyed:
The top yarn was done with a microwave and the bottom one was solar dyed. We used Kool Aid for the color on both. You have to heat them up but you can used different methods to do that.
Next months meeting will be Saturday, November 14 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sanders library in Sherwood. Can’t wait to see everyone!
See you then,Opal
