Edmonton Fibre Frolic May 26

We are heading to Edmonton! On May 26, we’ll be joining the wonderful people at the Edmonton Fibre Frolic to hang out with the fibre fanatics (aka our people) in a new part of the province. I can’t wait!

go go go yarn bowls!

Scales everywhere! Fibre Shindig is in less than 2 weeks (April 21 at Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Centre) and we’re building and glazing in preparation for this amazing show. This is our 5th? Year at Shindig and it’s always so fun. The vendors and customers make it a great day. This means we’d better have things to make them happy, so the fun continues making these new mermaid bowls. I cut some slits in perfectly good pots for more yarn bowls and we have some new glazes for these babies. I can’t wait to show them off once they come out of the glaze kiln next week. Our Studio Helper Jill has moved on to work and adventure all across the country so we also have a young potter joining us this week! Miss Cassie is entering ACAD in the fall and she will have the best slab rolling skills in her class if we have anything to say about it. She makes beautiful pieces and also laughs at our corny jokes so it’s a great match. We appreciate her help, especially as Shindig and Edmonton Fibre Frolic approach. I’ll be back when the glaze kiln opens!

Still not clay – I’m weaving!

Miss Katie is modeling my handwoven scarf made from five varieties of Sea Turtle Fibre Arts fingering yarn. It was a project that I kept falling in and out of love with on the loom but once it was off, SHAZAM. I love it. It will be off to a new home where I hope the future wearer likes it as much as I do!

Not clay – Weaving!

Fringe twisted, wet finished, and in the hands of the father-in-law, who has worn it all afternoon. SUCCESS – WIP dominated!  Jay is modeling, and Jarrad, the maker of penannular shawl pins, is bombin’.

Thank you CFAF!

Thank you for coming out to visit at #CFAF this past weekend. My pedometer displayed 4672 yesterday, and 37 today, so I am obviously all partied out! (and maybe I danced in our booth more than I thought yesterday) Thank you for hosting, Calgary Fibre Arts Festival! #yycyarn #knittersofinstagram #hookersgonnahook #YarnBowlsAllGone #LoveMyFibreCommunity #BuyHandmade
