Carolina Fiber Fest Wrap Up!

This past weekend, I had the awesome opportunity to teach and attend my local fiber festival, Carolina Fiber Fest!



It usually takes place right around this time of year at the North Carolina State Fair Grounds. Now, I’ve taught at CFF before, but not in the past few years. So, it was a nice surprise to be invited back.

I had one class that sold out (YAY!) and it was…CROCHET! Now, for any of you that don’t know what a big deal that is clearly don’t crochet. Not only is crochet hard as hell to sell, getting people to sign up for your classes is even more difficult. Crocheters love great instruction…so when I’m able to offer it I jump at the opportunity.

This year I taught, Learn Tunisian Crochet! It’s one of my favorite classes and techniques to teach and watching the students go from beginners to accomplished tunisian crocheters was thrilling. We even had a few students who hadn’t ever crocheted walking out of class confident in what they were doing. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me.

Psst…this was the view from my classroom!

Now, teaching a sold-out class is never easy, but always thrilling. Every single person is an individual and I love giving them the time and attention they deserve! You’re paying a lot for a class with me and I want you to have the best 3 hours of your day!

I also managed to get a bunch of shopping in! From Unplanned Peacock (to stock up on yarn) and then to Twin Birch (to stock up on crochet hooks)! It was SUCH a blast and I cannot wait until next year!
