Many Guild members enjoyed the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival last weekend. The festival offers something for everyone – actually lots of things for everyone!
There were dozens of vendors selling every fiber related item imaginable and especially lots of yarn; animal barns full of sheep, goats, rabbits, lamas, and alpacas; classes galore; a lovely display of items made by our Tigard Knitting Guild members; and a fiber division featuring work from invited artists as well as lots of items entered just for fun. This last group included some items by Guild members and some of those items won prizes.
Some of our members took turns sitting – and knitting of course – with our display to tell interested people who we are and what we do. Thank you to all who loaned their beautiful items for the display and to those who volunteered to represent our guild!
In the Fiber Division, items from our guild members included a vest and two shawls from Anna, a shawl by Dessie, a skein of handspun yarn by brand new member (yay!) Kathleen, and a blanket by Hilary.
Diamond Award winning blanket and poster with photos and descriptions of the 30 breeds of sheep whose wool was used in the blanket. Many, many thanks to Bob for creating the wonderful poster.
