I wanted to pop by and let you know that we will not be at the Eugene Saturday Market this weekend. We are very busy getting ready for the fiber festival, Black Sheep Gathering, on June 19-21 in Eugene. Jeff is making lots of buttons and I have so many to tie on cards. (My muffin tins are overflowing!) We’ll also be busy getting shawl pins, knitting magnets, and animal crossing signs ready among other things. Our market friend Fiona (check out her artwork, it’s amazing!) let us borrow some display pieces for the show and we’re so grateful to her because now we can focus on making stuff instead of making displays. She has a tall, spinning greeting card rack that is going to be perfect for displaying our button cards.
We had a booth at the Black Sheep Gathering for the first time last year and we had such a great response to our offerings, we’re really looking forward to being back this year. For those of you within driving distance, it’s a wonderful place for fiber lovers!
By the way, did you know that it’s World Wide Knit in Public Day tomorrow? (It was created in 2005 and is the world’s largest knitter event.) I saw a flyer up at a local yarn shop recently. We’ll be having a rare weekend at home, so I won’t be knitting in public anywhere, but I’m planning on picking up my needles and thinking about the knitters all around the world doing the very same thing.
So, we’ll be in buttonland over here this weekend. What are you guys up to over the weekend?
