So on the fiber festival. One of the things I hated leaving behind when I left Northern VA., besides friends and family of course, was the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. If you live anywhere near MD, you have got to go. It's always held the first weekend in May and it's phenomenal!! I've lived in Arizona now for one year and three months and I need a fiber festival fix. After a little searching, I've found my destination; the Southwest Fiber Festival in Amado, Arizona on October 25. It's sponsored by the Southwest Fiber Arts Guild and from the website, it looks really organized. Although it's only a one day event, it's seems to be packed full of vendors, classes, competitions and livestock. What more could you ask for?
So I'll let you know what I think. I'll have to be careful not to compare it too much the the one in Maryland. I think that one is one of the largest in the country so I need to be prepared for a smaller scale event. Large or small, I'm sure it will be fun!
