Sandy and I are leaving today for Allegan, Michigan, and not just to shop, either.  We are going to be vending at the Michigan Fiber Festival with Dyed in the Wool for the first time ever!!  Now, I will warn everyone that this will be different for us.  Because of the limitations of available space (and waiting on a list for that space to become available) Sandy and I took what they had to give us, space-wise.  And what they could give us this year was a 10 X 10 space.  Okay, just to give you some reminders, in Kentucky, we had a 10 X 30 space.

And at Hoosier Hills,we had a 10 X 20 space.

And at the Fiber Expo in Ann Arbor, we had a 15 X 20 space.

So squeezing all 60! of our fibers into a 10 X 10 space is daunting to say the least, but we are going to do it.  This being said, the “general store” approach to making sure you get the fiber you need is going to be our best bet.  You place your order from the menu board…

…(don’t worry, we have a new one) and we will fill your order and bring it to you for you to buy.  If you want to see a larger sample of a fiber, we will bring the bag to you and let you see it in all its glory.  Basically, we will be at your beck and call the entire time the festival is open and want to make the best experience for you considering our limited booth space.

And wait until you see the new and improved menu board!!!  Not only do we have spun samples of every thing available, but we have knitted and felted swatches for most (and are doing more as we can) so you can see what the finished yarn looks like in an actual project.

We are beyond excited about this weekend!  See you there!!!
