Views from SAFONA

 The Fifth Annual SAFONA Fiber Festival was quite lovely!  It was a tad smaller than it was last year, but there were some familiar faces and new people to strike up a conversation with.

 What was remarkable about this year’s SAFONA festival was that my DH VOLUNTARILY…I repeat…VOLUNTARILY came along.  His reasoning?  He was wanted to show more of an interest in what it is that I do, and I appreciate that. I think he had fun, too.

 I have a strategy when I go to events like this.  I first make my lap, see what there is and what’s available, and then make my purchasing decisions.  I did not buy any yarn, but I did buy some lovely roving to work with on my drop spindle. 

I love seeing the bunnies there.  Once again, there was a lady sitting and spinning directly from the angora rabbit sitting on her lap.  This bunny here was waiting his turn.  The DH and I got to pet him.

Very nice festival!  It’s not big, but there is a lot of stuff there.  I was in fiber heaven.

4th Annual SAFONA Fiber Arts Festival

On Saturday I visited the Small Alpaca Farms of the Northeast Association’s (SAFONA) Fiber Arts Festival in New Holland, PA.  It was a dreamland for knitters, crocheter, spinners, weavers, and shoppers, as there were completed projects there for purchase.  Though small in size, this festival was well worth the visit, and plan on going again next year.  I did purchase a beautiful hank of hand painted purple alpaca yarn.  It is beautiful.

Enjoy the photos I have here, as I went armed with camera in hand.  Though no alpacas, there were angora bunnies, as this was festival for fibers of any animal.
