A table full of lovely prizes. You could hear the cheers when someone numbers came up.
Yet another large table chock full of so many beautiful prizes.
Here is my daughter Jackie grinning happily with her winnings. A bag filled with Fiber Art magazines. Way to go Jackie
Somehow I don't see the Mr Burns resemblance anymore... Jackie is a great sport and has great sense of humor to make us laugh.
This is a close-up of a chenille technique. I had never seen someone make this before.
The lady explained that she place three identical motif on top. There is a backing and a layer of cotton batting and she sews straight lines all over the piece and then cuts through the layers and then wets the piece and brushes the cuts with a stiff brush to make the chenille. Very pretty.
This is the lady who made this. It was so interesting to see the process. You can see the brush and the water bottle she used.
This lady was making some beautiful quilted pieces and I was taken by her Janome sewing machine with the table. I love her small iron and ironing board.
This lady was making a beautiful quilt bag and she also had a Janome sewing machine.
This table had a bobbin lace display with intricate designs. There is a piece of very intricate lace in a small cameo in a jewelry box. Just such beautiful work.
There was a table display of all kind of beautiful finished pieces on tables but the fashion show started and I was scrambling to get some pictures of the artists wearing their creations. I'll show some more at a later date.
This lady knitted this colorful shawl. Since I was taking photos I can't remember all the type of wools everyone were using but there were all kind of fancy names.
Look how beautiful this looks.
A lovely little shawl. I can't remember if it was knitted or crocheted.
This lady decided to wear her beautiful big quilt.
This lady made a jacket, scarf and blouse and her friend made the little fiber broach for her lapel.
This lady shared my table. She made this beautiful shawl with alpaca wool that she got in Peru.
Here is another shot of the back.
This lady is sporting felted floral decorations on her hat and sweater. I believe that she also knitted her sweater but I am not 100% sure as I have difficulty hearing in a noisy environment. You can click on the picture to get a closer view.
This lady knitted a lovely sweater and changed some of the motif at the bottom to suite her taste. I can't remember if it's an Islandic or Nordic pattern but I just love it and the colors too.
This creative lady felted her scarf, her purse and even her boots.
This lady made a chenille vest using a seascape deign. So much work but a beautiful job.
Another view from the back.
This lady also had a lovely scarf.
This lady is wearing a cashmere sweater that came from the Chris and Christine Silver Cashmere goat farm whose barns and out buildings burn last week and they also lost half of their cashmere goat herd. They were in the process of getting the building ready for insurance but unfortunately they just a few days short of being insured and lost everything. Chris has Leukemia. Donations were taken at the Retreat for their trust Fund to help them get back on their feet.
This lovely lady is weary a beautiful shawl and gloves she made. She is wearing a tatted pendants that she also made. She teaches tatting and next year I'm planning to give it a try.
The photo is not focused but I wanted you to see the back of the shawl.
This felting artist was busy making felted bunnies for her grandkids prior to the show. She is wearing a felted shawl and a pair of felted boots that she created.
This lady is wearing a beautiful shawl that she either knitted or crocheted.
Here is a blurry view from the back but you get the idea.
I'm sorry that I have so many pictures on this post but I've had request to show the pictures as the spinners were to smitten with spinning to take photos.
There will be more pictures of rugs and things later .
I love to read your comments. Thanks for visiting my blog. JB
