Once again, it's been much too long since I've posted. I love writing the blog, but have such a hard time finding the time! There's lots to tell you, but for today, will start with our most recent event.
After another long year of hard work, Fiber Fusion Northwest has come and gone. The big event took place last weekend. I am very involved with the planning of this event and, along with a small but dedicated team, have put a lot of time into it over the past year. Finally the day came to see the results of our labors. The YouTube video below was created by another member of our committee and shows a compilation of the show.
The show was as much fun as it looks, and it was so rewarding to see it all come together!
In addition to being active on the planning committee, we participated as a vendor selling yarn and roving from our booth, and we entered 3 fleeces in the alpaca fleece show.
We couldn't be happier to have these three alpacas in our herd and breeding program!
With Fiber Fusion over for this year, it's time to look toward what's happening next. That would be Whidbey FiberQuest, and it's happening this weekend! Similar to a yarn shop tour, Whidbey FiberQuest is a self-guided tour of several fiber farms, a yarn shop, two wineries, a deli and a chocolate shop. Visit all on the tour for a chance to win great prizes, including a wonderful fiber-filled gift basket valued at over $300. Visit the FiberQuest website for all the details, and plan on making a trip to Whidbey Island this weekend! It will be a fun, fiber-filled event you won't want to miss. Hope to see you!

I enjoy all aspects of life with alpacas - from caring for them, to training them, spinning and knitting their wonderful fiber, photographing them, and even writing about them!
