Yes, summer is coming to an end. Although it isn’t fall until the end of September, per the calendar, Labor Day marks it’s beginning in my mind. The good thing is that fall is my favorite time of year with so much beauty to see. It seems that there are so many activities and antique and fiber shows I cannot possibly take them all in.

We are kicking off the season by joining some fiber friends demonstrating various fiber crafts at the Spencer Fair this weekend. Running four days from Friday, August 30 through Monday, September 2 at the Spencer Fairgrounds in Spencer, MA, there is a midway and all sorts of agricultural exhibits, including our own fiber tent. You can find us next to the farm and fiber animal tent (but not the cow barn!), set up with demos of spinning, knitting, weaving and more.

There will also be sales of handmade and/or locally produced goods. I will be spinning on a Majacraft Suzie Pro, so any of you in the area who are curious about this wheel are welcome to come and see and try it out. I may also have some products for sale, including fiber and hand dyed wools. My demo days are Saturday and Sunday.

I’ve also been busy adding a few new products to the website. We have three new Woolart Samplers and more to come.

Wishing you a great end-of-summer weekend, however you choose to spend it!
