The DFW Fiber Fest 2011

From these pictures, you will be able to see that I am not a photojournalist.  After I loaded them on the computer, I realized that I've only really captured one facet of Fiber Fest....the vendor hall.  What does that say?

There were some new faces...Whirled Fibers, an LYS in Duncanville, manned the yarn winding booth:

Stone and String Studio, an indie dyer from Flower Mound, brought some pretty yarns and fiber:

The Woolie Ewe, an LYS from Plano, brought only a wee representation of their store inventory:

Crochet Texas had an informational booth:

Creative Touch provided chair-massages for those weary shopping muscles:

There were many familiar vendors...The Great Yarn Company is an online entity:

Michele of The Fiber Lady had lots of bamboo and bamboo blend yarn and fiber:

Theresa from Buffalo Gold brought their goodies:

Madelinetosh brought lots of yarn:

Sherry of Brooks Farm Yarn is figuring yarn quantity needed for a customer:

Ska Ska Designs returns from Colorado.  They were a first-time vendor last year:

Ronda at The Shabby Sheep brought some fun yarn:

The Knitting Fairy was busy bestowing fibery wishes all weekend:

bonny beads had buttons, stitch markers, shawl pins and more:

Sony and Misty of Knitting Lagniappe always add a little extra:

There really were classes...Here's a random class picture, but there were many others:

Kollage Yarns was a major sponsor this year (Thank you Kollage).  The lovely ladies, Erika and Anne, showed off the neat yarns and square needles for which Kollage is so popular:

It was fun to see familiar faces and to meet new friends.

Y'all come out to DFW Fiber Fest next year...Save the date:  March 30-April 1.

MK out.

Thank you for all the photos MK! I *still* haven't downloaded mine. Sigh.
