We were so happy...even after a day of cold and wild wind! We had so much fun checking out all the vendors and discovering new yarn. We met some really nice fiber enthusiasts.  It was so exciting looking for new items for the shop. This was such a great festival...just the right size with enough variety to be exciting.
