The 4th annual Georgia FiberFest, Georgia’s largest fiber festival, is a week away! Cedar Hill Farm Company is a sponsor again this year and I will have a booth (you can’t miss us; we’re at the front door!) full of seriously gorgeous autumn yarns that won’t hit the online shop until AFTER the event, unless I sell out at the show and then they’ll just be gone (so you better come to the show and shop ’til you drop!!). I’m also going to have 50 new grommet knitting bags that aren’t listed in the shop, stitch markers, knitting needles, patterns, hand-painted roving, natural alpaca and llama roving, and THE VERY FIRST YARN FROM THE SHEEP OF CEDAR HILL FARM.
I am also teaching some knitting classes — go here to register for more than 50 classes in every area of fiber craft that there is — so you’ll want to get in on that, too. This event is also being sponsored by Kromski North America and several other amazing companies. Plus, the Handweavers’ Guild of America will be there doing some fabulous demonstrations. The list of must-see vendors is pretty long (Sheep Incognito, for example, will have a booth…) and the market is FREE, because who wants to spend money on admission when there’s sooooooooo much hand-painted and hand-dyed yarn to buy? As well, there will be a dinner in a restored mill on the river catered by one darned amazing chef, and Pam Powers, who is also teaching two classes during the show, is the guest speaker. You’ll also want to get in on that!
The Georgia FiberFest will be September 10-12 at the Convention and Trade Center in Columbus, GA, which just so happens to be a restored ironworks from the Civil War with its own train! So, stop in or stay over and visit twice! Hope to see you there!
