The first Magnolia State Fiber Fest was a busy, colorful experience. There were classes on knitting, felting and weaving that I observed for a few minutes each. Also demos of spinning and weaving going on. When we asked about a particular knitting technique, the knitter was more than happy to describe how it was done. Lots of friendly, helpful organizers, demonstrators and vendors were there.
There was a lot of fiber for sale, both dyed and undyed. Since I don't spin, it was interesting to see the fiber but I wanted the yarn! So on Friday afternoon I made a jaunt through selecting yarns that I really liked. Then on Saturday morning I checked all the yarns again and made my purchases.
