We're off to OFFF

Well, very soon we're off to OFFF - Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival! We're packing up and trying to think what to bring, and wondering how our space will work out and all that stuff. This will be my first time at OFFF as a vendor. Charlie & Melda hadn't gone for some years before I bought the business either. I decided Black Sheep was so much fun that I'd give this one a whirl too. Fall is a tough time around here cause we're busy with the knitting catalog and Wool Rag and spin catalog, but I thought I'd see if I could squeeze it in without killing myself and everybody around me.... here's hoping! :)

Look for us on the porch of the main pavillion! We'll have lots of wheels, and gadgets and sock yarn and books.

AND, if you show up in your t-shirt from this years Komen Race for the Cure, you'll get a small token of our appreciation (while supplies last). It's a really important fund raiser for a really important issue, and I'd just like to say thanks for supporting it.

And that mystery photo from the last entry is indeed silk worm cocoons. Cathy and Wanda are both raising them. Don't know how much silk they're going to get since they aren't snuffing the moths, but letting them emerge from the cocoons and complete their lifecycles. It's a very cool process, watching these guys do their thing.

Okay! Let's all go have a great time at OFFF, it's gonna be a great show!

I'll look for you at OFFF! I'm taking three fleeces over Thursday evening that are entered in the fleece show, and then driving over with four of my Shetlands on Friday afternoon. Hope to have some time then to look around. Then back again early Sunday morning to get ready for the sheep show, and then hopefully a little more shopping time. If you have any spinning fiber you want to get rid of, bring it along! (Sometimes I don't have time to process what I have and just want to sit down and SPIN!)

P.S. The baby mini-donk was VERY soft, but you'd have to shave the poor thing to get some fiber -- and it would be less than 2" in staple at that.

I'm so glad you guys are going to be at OFFF. I'll look for your booth on Sunday!
