The second day of the Bothwell SpinIn was warmer than the first – so our umbrellas were up to keep us nice and shaded.
Most of the day was spent talking to people. There were fibre fans from all over Australia. I even learned about how someone had previously used Drysdale fleece in a woven vest!
There was the fashion parade and a host of awards given out. (Details on the Bothwell SpinIn website)
But mostly, I just chatted and spun…. and made sure The Lucky Ewe got to rest too. 🙂
I finally gave in and purchased some of the GORGEOUS Cormo fleece that was brought along to the Festival by the local Downie family – who developed this Aussie breed of sheep. (In fact…. there may be some of the coloured Cormo fleece available in the Shop tomorrow night…. Don’t miss out!)
The Ashford stand may have had a visit from me too… I needed some more bobbins and a new reed for my rigid heddle.
But mostly there were lots and lots of talking, and admiring woolcraft and spinning. 🙂
