Fiber Friends Festival: Coming Right Up!

Boy I love how many art and craft festivals Austin has. This weekend, for example, the Cherrywood Art Festival happens within spitting distance of my house, at Maplewood Elementary. And over at the Monarch Events Center, the Blue Genie Art Bazaar is happening until Christmas Even.



It's time for the FIBER FRIENDS FESTIVAL at Hill Country Weavers!

Saturday, December 12, 10 am – 5 pm
Sunday, December 13, 12 – 5 pm

This is yet another chance to hang out with your fellow addicts, and to see what they've been up to all year. You can buy all sorts of groovy knitted, crocheted, felted, and handwoven items. You'll also find hand spun and hand dyed yarn and lots of related craft accessories. And if you think about it-- you're busy knitting gifts for everyone on your list but are they busy knitting for you? Probably not. So how will you acquire some lovely handmade fiber art for yourself? Well, give yourself a gift, eh?

Here's a list of who will be offering up their lovely work for your buying pleasure:

Come see and buy fabulous hand-crafted items by these local fiber artists:
Moonbeam Weaving,
Platypus Dreams,
Fashion Outlaws,

Dear Knit Buzz-
I am new tot he world ogf blogging but love your blog so much I joined(?) not sure if that is right. Wish I lived in your area, you have SO MUCH great fiberly stuff going on. Live oput here in BEAUTIFUL Santa Cruz, CA, on Monterey Bay, where ocean meets the redwoods. Can't complain.
