Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair

Today my friend, Vickie Good and my husband, Steve drove with me to Fletcher, NC to the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair (SAFF)  http://www.saffsite.org/. We enjoyed a 2 1/2 hour drive up the mountain; the leaves were beautiful!  Here they are having way too much fun at lunch:

SAFF is a wonderful event.  This is my third year going and I have loved it each time. It is a fair where those who love natural fibers of all sorts gather and share information, patterns, skills, etc. There are llamas, goats, rabbits, sheep, and alpacas that are there for judging. You can watch them being sheared or plucked if you’re lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time.  I’ve yet to take a class (I always forget to look at the classes until they are all full).  But classes are being taught all weekend on spinning, weaving, knitting, crocheting, felting…. 

Here is a shot of what you can expect when you go:

And here is a baby goat, 4 days old. I took several pictures of him, but he just wouldn’t pose for me! He was way too interested in the people around him and especially his owner who was holder of the baby bottle.
