I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to go to my 1st Stitches South this last week. I have never been to Tennessee so was interested to visit a new state and check out how they do a Fiber and Yarn show down South.
I got to make some new friends and peruse the Marketplace. A few things jumped out for me seeing Sawdust Co. Tim the owner was handcrafting shaker boxes in his booth and was kind enough to let me take some pictures.
He had boxes that could be used for storage (he has trays too!) and also boxes that function as a yarn box (i.e yarn bowl with cover). His work is truly lovely and I am excited that he is coming to the Bellevue Art Festival this summer.
I also fell hard for Camellia Fiber Company Rebekka’s yarn are all hand spun. They ones I saw in the booth ranged from super bulky to aran weight and are minimally spun. They are soft clouds and after some prodding from some friends I broke down and bought some skeins that will be hand dyed by Rebecca using madder root.
