Tomorrow I’ll be making my yearly pilgrimage to the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival in Berryville, VA. If you’ve never been there I encourage you to come out! It’s a smaller festival than some others I’ve been to, but there are still plenty of vendors to shop, fleeces to check out, and activities to do, including classes and sheepdog demonstrations. And if you’re a glutton for fair food like I am, there’s usually a nice assortment of food to choose from. While most of the vendors take plastic, be sure to bring some cash for entry and for the occasional vendor that prefers cash or in case anyone is having trouble with their card reader.
What I think I like best about Shenandoah is that it is a great size for covering it in one day if you’re not able to dedicate an entire weekend to hard-core yarn festivaling, and I love seeing familiar faces at the yarn vendors every year. If you see me, be sure to come up and say “hi” and introduce yourself! I love meeting online friends face-to-face! It’ll be hard to me miss me: I’ll be the short gal carrying a very large, very conspicuous Yarn Edit bag, handing out Yarn Edit business cards and pens, and depending on the weather, wearing a yarn edit shirt and hat, too.
Hope to see you there!
