It’s taken a few days for the fiber to settle and to process all the goodness that was Black Sheep Gathering. Stash hosted our first-ever fiber festival booth, and it was a hoot! A busy, lesson-learning, inspiring, and fun weekend to be sure.
When we got to the space on Thursday there was literally nothing there but a table! Setting up the layout of the booth was challenging and fun, and I give serious props to all the vendors who have an inspiring set-up at these kinds of shows. It’s not easy!
We chose to highlight the best of what Stash has to offer in store and packed up some local treasures from indie dyers, spinners, and local companies like Imperial Yarn, Abstract Fiber, Huckleberry Knits, Three Fates Yarns, Hazel Knits, Knitted Wit, Becoming Art, Pigeonroof Studios, and more.
Throughout the weekend we chatted with a ton of friends, old and new. It was wonderful to see some finished Stash knits in the wild, and a real thrill to see people so excited about our booth. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hello!
One of the most fun things for me about attending fiber festivals is the sheer volume of beautiful hand knits walking around. Stunning shawls, sweaters, and other accessories abound, and Liz and I both left with a long list of projects we’d like to knit. As a knitter I feed off of that kind of inspiration
