August is here, ushering in the second half of fiber fest season and the long, slow slide from midsummer to autumn. We have a few more festivals scheduled for the season:
The Michigan Fiber Festival in Allegan, Michigan
A Wool Gathering in Yellow Springs, Ohio
The Sauder Village Fiber Arts Fest in Archbold, Ohio
The Autumn Fiber Festival in Ashland, Ohio
More info about these can be found on the events section of our page.
We’re also expanding our cross-stitch product offerings to include fabrics, beads, and kits, and we’ve just received a shipment of Omega Yarns’ #9 La Espiga, a nylon cord that comes in a wide range of vibrant colors and is very popular for crochet.
Last but not least, we want to thank everyone who voted and helped to spread the word about our FedEx Small Business Grant entry. We’re pretty sure we made the cut to the final hundred, but we were not among those selected by FedEx as the winners. While we’re disappointed, we’ll be ready next year to enter as soon as the contest opens!
Our plans to rejuvenate the property next door will continue even without the help of the grant; we’ll keep you updated on the progress as it develops.
