Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival

Hi there friends , 

Hope you are having a wonderful week.
This last weekend I went to the OFFF - Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival.
We have it every year here in Canby, Oregon.
A fun way for all the great people ( and animals) that make the beautiful fibers for us knitters and crocheters and all other crafters ( not sure those are real words) to get together and show their beautiful work of art.
The festival starts on Fridays with just some classes and workshops and on Saturday and Sunday it's open to everyone ... and that is when we went.
This year not many of our friends from our knitting group could go so my friends Shan, Theresa and I went and had such a wonderful time.
We saw so many beautiful yarns, beautiful fibers to spin and the beautiful
Animals who gifts us with their gorgeous fibers.
I didn't buy very much yarn this year, to be honest I only bought 1 skein.., can you believe it ? But I bought a big woven basket to keep my projects all in one beautiful spot in our great room.
I'm sorry I forgot to take a picture of my goodies but I promise I will show it to you later.
My friend Shan got so many compliments on her shawl she was wearing we had to stop every 5 minutes because everybody wanted to ask her about it ... It's absolutely gorgeous and it was definitely not easy, but she is a great knitter ... And she did a great job ... 
We did have a wonderful time looking through all the great things they had this year,  but most of all I have to say I had a great, great time spending time with my friends ... It makes life all worth it .
Hope you are having a great week and enjoying every little great moment you have every day ...
Thanks again so very much for all your comments ... They make me so happy.


  1. Hi Taci, I'm so sorry I missed you! We aren't morning people, so went later in the afternoon. But it looked like you had a wonderful time with your two friends. I only bought a magnetic marker for keeping track on patterns.. for $1. Next year I'm going to buy more and support the vendors. Hope to see you soon.. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Looks like a great festival, making some wonderful memories sharing with friends.

  3. oh thanks for sharing this great moment ! I'd have been there ... ! But too far from here .. :-))) maybe one day if I'm going and visiting Oregon !! Have a lovely day !

  4. What a great day out, it looks very much like Yarndale over here, a crafters paradise :)

  5. Her shawl is gorgeous but so is your beautiful cowl. I would have stopped you to talk about it. So glad you had fun. It looks like a wonderful festival.

  6. Taci it looks like you had a wonderful time at the fiber festival! How I wish I could have been with you girls and explored those fabulous booths. Thank you for sharing the pictures with us and I can't wait to see your yarn and basket.

  7. Hi Taci. What fun. I read Teresa's post on it too! Wish I could have been there!

  8. That looks like so much fun. We recently had the Yarndale festival here in Yorkshire, which looks very similar to yours - lots of sheep and lots of yarn! x

  9. Looks like the perfect day. I had to miss the yarn and fiber fair here in NY. There's always next year!

  10. I was sorry to miss OFFF this year even though I was glad to be traveling back East :) I am so glad you got to go! I think the last time I went I took my Ashford Joy spinning wheel and sat out on the lawn with the other spinners spinning which was great fun! xx


I love to hear all of your comments and I feel special that you took the time to visit me here today :)
