North Country Fiber Fair 2018 - Day 2

Day 2 (Saturday) is always the most exciting day of NCFF, there are classes, sheep shearing demos, the spinning circle and the Marketplace is finally open!

Saturday brought a full spectrum of classes for attendees to choose from (in air-conditioned comfort, lol). I taught an Amigurumi Crochet class for the first time and it went really well so I'm going to be offering it again at upcoming events & to anyone who would like to learn. If you'll be in the Sioux Falls area & would like to take a 1-on-1 class send me an e-mail so we can figure out time & place.

Saturday's Classes included:

  • Beginning Nalbinding with Amy Vander Vorste

  • Beginning Needle Tatting with Marta Telkamp

  • Book Binding with Connie Herring

  • Crochet and Felt a Birdhouse with Kim Oslund

  • Embellish Your (Already) Knits with Kim Oslund

  • Hey, Kids: Learn Basic Crochet! with Jeri Kurtz

  • Kawaii Amigurumi—Cute Crochet Stuffies! with Shaina Scott (me!)

  • Nalbinding Braids and Knotwork with Amy Vander Vorste

  • Play with Bengala Mud Dyes with Chiaki O’Brien

  • Spindle Spinning—Chain Plying with Joy Kammerer

  • Swedish Art Weaves with Joanne Hall

  • Tin Thread Chevron Bracelet with Katherine Buenger

  • Tin Thread Necklace with Katherine Buenger

The Banquet & Fashion Show are always highlights Saturday evening after the Marketplace closes & even though it was crazy hot, this year was again a wonderful event with great food & lots of amazing hand-makes being shown off. I was incredibly touched that the knitting group from North Dakota chose my Soiree Cowl pattern for a knit-a-long this past year. They brought their cowls along for the fashion show & let me snap a picture of all the beautiful variations that they created. It was so wonderful to see them & to get to meet with this great group of knitters again this year!

Don't you just love all the different colors that they chose? There's no way I could pick a favorite, they're all so beautiful!

I'll be back again tomorrow with the last day of classes & what my booth looked like this year.

Till then, Happy Knitting!

Shaina ^_^
