I do love spinning yarn in public and I got in 2 days this past weekend to do just that. The young boys are the most interested in the craft and how to’s of it all. They ask great questions and really watch how it’s done. I try to have double and single ply yarns along with finished products to help visitors tie it all together. For the little girls we relate spinning on a wheel to “Sleeping Beauty” as most of them have seen that movie.
Although I didn’t have any sales it was a very productive weekend. I made about 6 to 8 skeins of yarn plus I finished the second alpaca hat. Some local alpaca ranchers have invited me to spin at a pumpking patch event they are attending. They are even allowing me to sell some of my handmade items too.
I have the weekend off from demostrating but will be visiting a new yarn shop on Saturday. I am looking forward to a relaxing week!
