Enviro Fest Stall - Sat 22nd Sept

I am thrilled to be attending the Korowal EnviroFest this weekend.. this will be my first actual proper market stall, so I am a little nervous, slightly crazy about having enough stock prepped, and totally excited to be able to just BE there to spin up some eco-fibers!!

I'll be taking along some Felting & Spinning Batts,
handdyed Soy silk & Bamboo rovings,
a few handdyed yarns, and a colourful cackle of Handspun Art Yarn,
aswell as some Children's Felt Balls, Needle felting books including 'From Factory to Fantasy' by the most splendid Goddess of Needlefelting Ayala Talpai,
I also have a few copies of Pluckyfluff's 'Handspun Revolution',
and some handknitted scarves on a special end-of-season sale
- all hanging out with me & my trusty Ashford Traveller.

It is entirely possible that i will be scrambling it all together last minute considering I have the twinsies by my side.. but children makethe prep all the more interesting,right!!
I think we'll be learning how to pack cello bags with colourful wool-fluff for our morning craft activities this week.. Imi is already fairly adept at making treasure beads from the fluff that mysteriously finds its way into the toy stash ~ & she is currently spashing in the rinse buckets with her water-buddy Maz.

If you are in the Blue Mountains this coming weekend, come along for a look-see.. There will be heaps of local businesses to check out, from sustainable lifestyle, healing sessions, childrens workshops, some fantastic local handmade products & more more more!!

Hopefully I'll see you there *-*
