Artist Update and Festival Info - Laughing Cloud Studio

A couple weeks ago I introduced you to Michelle of Laughing Cloud Studio. I have some new information on where you can find her and her hand dyed yarn, fiber and other work. So if you live in AZ or are planning a visit, you might like to add these festivals to your itinerary.

This coming weekend, "Saturday, Nov. 8th is the "Mountain Weavers & Spinners biannual fashion show & boutique" Its being held at the Prescott Adult Center, 1280 E. Rosser St, Prescott, AZ.. The boutique opens at 11am and the fashion show starts at 1pm. The boutique is open to the public but the fashion show requires a ticket, as lunch is provided."

And here's a very cool sounding event:
Cascabel's 28th Christmas Fair on Saturday and Sunday December 6 & 7, 2008. Michelle says, "The one, really, really fun show I'm doing is the annual Cascabel community fair. ... It's been going on for over 20+ years and is held in a really funky cool part of the community. The place used to be a commune but is now a private residence. They have artisans set-up in a laid back kinda way and there is always good music at this event. Sometimes there is performance art from a troupe out of Tucson. I'll be selling both my finished work and my hand dyed yarns/fibers at this show." Click on the link to see archived photos of the fair. The fair website shares, "The Cascabel Community Fair is a celebration of rural Arizona beauty, history, hospitality, diversity and artistic expression in an awe-inspiring outdoor setting. Cascabel is located along the banks of the beautiful San Pedro River..."

A special thank you to Michelle for keeping in touch with us here at
Wind Rose! We wish you well at your upcoming events!

Oh Jenn, I love all this great AZ stuff you have found. Thanks to you, I'm going to Tucson on Saturday for a nuno felting class at Grandmothers Spinning Wheel. I think you should go to Prescott and we'll both kidnap felter sorts and bring them back to Chandler so we can start a local group - maybe we could even involve home brews!

That's so cool that you're going to Grandma's! I wish I were coming with you! I'm planning on teaching myself this weekend. We'll have to compare notes!

Man, if my eight-year-old didn't have a book report...
