It's time for THE NW WASHINGTON FAIR!!



 
 Welcome to the Wool Show!

Artists & crafters from all over the region will have their items on display this week at the NW Washington Fair in Lynden WA

 We hope that you'll stop by and take a look!

Here are a few things from past fairs to show you -




There will be spinners spinning. 


And Weavers, weaving!  

  And beautiful shawls, scarves, hand-spun yarn and all manner of hand made items for you to look at. 















































And best of all, we have these beautiful new signs made by our friend Allen Berry!  What a talent!  I just know that they will bring a lot of people in to look at our displays.

And many kudos to Niki Kuklenski, who took on the HUGE job as Wool Show Superintendent!  She has put in many, many hours and has whipped us all into shape.  There will be people demonstrating spinning, weaving, drop spindling, and more all week long.  We hope you can stop by and say hello!

My grandmother was a spinner and a weaver. I remember watching her as a child and loving the art. She taught me a bit, but I have long forgotten all the skills. I'd love to learn again. Please include me in your newsletter. I'd like to learn and join your group. Thank you,

I have just learned to spin this year and would like to meet others who have the same interest. My daughter and I both spin and would love to get your newsletter and come spin with you.
