Just to list a few, there were raw fleeces available, rovings, yarns. There were vendors with processing equipment, combs, carders, and spinning wheels - again, just to name a few. You could also find beautiful finished handmade items. In the department of product, the turnout was great!
There were Llamas, Alpacas, Rabbits, and Sheep on display. Sheep shearing demonstrations... oh, if I had only taken pictures of all the goin' ons!

Had a chance to scraffito a few more mugs and bowls earlier today...
Wishing everyone a great weekend!

This is a technique called scrafitto - a clay slip, or underglaze is painted on the pot before the pot is fired and the clay slip is scratched away, revealing the clay underneath to create a design.
This is "Bewelah" - sort of a ewe-in-law to Ewenice. (Without going into all the drama of the relationship, they share the same ram, so really there's no "in-law", but this makes it sounds a little more proper.) In defense of the ewes, it's no different than a lot of the drama on tv these days.
Bewelah is also looking for work - she's been seen with a sign "Will work for weed" I'm still debating if this would be appropriate. It seems it might be wrong on a couple of different levels.
