SAFF REPORT

Attending the SAFF show in Asheville this weekend was a real eye opener.  Not unlike a large quilt show with huge numbers of vendors.......minus the quilts.  I had NO idea about this dedicated industry.


This view can only give you a glimpse of the vendors, selling everything to do with animal fiber; yarns, rovings, raw wool, all kinds of equipment and materials.  I got a good education from the very helpful and instructive vendors.  Many took the time to have ongoing demonstrations which I found fascinating.


This little pigmy goat created quite a crowd.....he was really adorable.


The facilities are a bit awkward for the workshop, but that didn't faze these students in a spinning class.

Besides purchasing animal fiber.....one could even purchase 'the animal!'

More pictures coming tomorrow....
