Woodstock Fleece Festival

The Festival is going to be here before we know it.

Saturday October 17 9am-5pm
Woodstock Fairgrounds
The Woodstock Fleece Festival is an annual event that invites fibre artists and others to join together in an atmosphere of appreciation, learning and camaraderie.The show will incorporate workshops and demonstrations from top instructors.  Exhibition booths will be selling everything from raw fibre to quality finished goods.  It is also a great place to have lunch!!!
Visit the Fleece Festival website for more information about the vendors and the workshops being offered... 

Here are a few pictures from last year's booth. It's good for me to look at them because then I know what we took. I try to take different yarns, kits and sample garments every year.

It's a great day that is a bit more relaxed than some of the other shows. I actually have time to talk to customers in Woodstock. Bring your family too. There is a farmers market and there will be animals at the show. Alpacas. Sheep. Rabbits. And who knows what else.

The Royale interchangeable needles set will make for a wonderful gift this season, presented in a specially designed box with pearly effect. The set contains 9 pairs of our ever-popular laminated birch wood interchangeable needles in sizes US 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 10.5, 11, four colour coded cords in lengths of 24” (green), 32” (orange - 2) & 40” (red) and a set of cord connectors. Each interchangeable needle is made from the colourful wood used for Dreamz needles in a striking new striped pattern with shiny brass tips adorning the ends of the needles. Each size comes in its own unique colour making it easy to identify each size. The unique combination of wood and metal gives a refined look to the needles and also provides an incomparable knitting experience.
The Royale Interchangeable Needle Set should be in the store mid-October. These sets are a limited edition and will go fast. Get your set on order and don't be disappointed.

For some reason they decided that it was necessary to pour the garage floor in the house across the road at 7 this morning. Needless to say, I was up early. It's almost 9pm and I'm heading to bed. The Jays aren't playing tonight so there isn't a need to stay up :) I can barely keep my eyes open so knitting might be a bad idea.
