Hope all is well with everyone…with Spring being just around the corner (although it’s 24 degrees today), we’ve begun work on Fiber in the Boro 2013.
We’re happy to announce that the date this year is Saturday November 2nd from 9am – 5pm. We have some great plans and ideas for this year’s festival and look forward to seeing everyone.
Keep and eye out as we post here as well as Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fiber-in-the-Boro/228568257180858?fref=ts#!/pages/Fiber-in-the-Boro/228568257180858 and Ravelry group http://www.ravelry.com/groups/fiber-in-the-boro . Also, we’re happy to announce that we’ll be partnering with the Middle TN Fiber Festival http://www.tnfiberfestival.com/ on their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Three-Creeks-Farm/182148323213 . We’re so excited to share all the fiber news between the festivals and with you.
Let the fun begin!
Well, here we are, Monday and everyone is home with their treasures…planning the next project, spinning the next yarn and practicing the new skills. What fun! Hope everyone had a good time. I know I did.
What a great fiber community Murfreesboro has. Thank you to all the vendors for making the trip to give us so many wonderful fibers and hand made gifts share. Thank you to the teachers for giving us new ideas. Thank you to The Blue Porch for giving us a yummy selection of treats to sustain us through our shopping.
Most of all, thank you to you….the guests who made this little festival a big success. We’ll see you all next year!
Here we are, the final countdown to the festival. Looks like the weather will be playing along with us for the weekend….perfect for browsing fiber goodies, taking a class, seeing a few animals (alpacas will be there on Saturday) and visiting with fiber lovers from our community.
There will be a spinning circle on Friday evening and all day Saturday….bring your wheel or drop spindle and hang out for a bit. Not a spinner, then join the circle with your knitting or crocheting…..all crafts welcome.
Check out class availability….there is still room.
Local table has a nice article on the middle Tennessee fiber scene. You can check it out online: http://www.localtable.net/articles/featured120917-3.php
Classes are starting to fill, so take a look and see if there is something you’d like to take. We will also have a number of free demonstrations throughout the day.
We will be collecting lap blankets and chemo caps (child and adult sizes) for Threads of Kindness, Beanies for Baldies and the Minnie Pearl Cancer Center. Please bring one by. Please keep in mind with chemo caps to use very soft yarn and avoid seams (or other textures that might irritate sensitive skin).
There will be a night market on Friday from 5:00 – 8:00 for those of you who can’t make it on Saturday. Not all of our vendors will be set up for it, but many will and they have great stuff!
Well October is here. Everyone come on out to the festival….so many wonderful vendors and classes…. It’s not too late to sign up for classes. We have some great returning teachers and some new ones with new skills to pick up. To add to this we will have a demonstration room…looks like we have several great topics already on tap….check that out.
We will also have more activities for children this year and there is also a charity donation box. Please bring in all hat sizes for Beanies for Baldies and adult sizes for the Minnie Pearl Cancer Center. Also, Threads of Kindness will be collecting shawls and lap blankets for Alive Hospice. Any donation for charity will be accepted…I’ll find a home for it….so many in need.
We will also have a spinning circle. Bring your wheel and join your fellow spinners for a little social spinning time.
The Blue Porch will be there serving breakfast and lunch on Saturday. Last year they brought homemade cinnamon rolls and some of our local coffee for breakfast. If you didn’t come last year just know that this is not festival food. It is much better and they will have some vegetarian options too.
And finally….doorprizes. Don’t forget to put your name in when you arrive. They are given out all during the hour, so listen closely while you’re shopping, learning and visiting.
Sounds like a great weekend!!!!
The class schedule is now up and registration is open. We have two days of classes this year.
