Knits at the Barn with the Quilts

Click here to visit the website with info for the Barnful of Quilts show this Saturday, Oct. 8, from 10–5pm.

Valerie Fox and the Fox Family Farm has sponsored this event for eight years.  It began with Quilt Artists and Valerie is branching out to other fiber artists.  I am so honored that she asked me to display some of my work this year.

For a $5 contribution to Samaritan’s Purse, you can see some awesome work, buy some art or fabric or YARN for yourself, and have a good time.  Hard to beat.

Many of the exhibitors are local artists and you may be surprised at how many fiber artists live in our area.  Are you one of them?

I hope you go.  If you have been on the Yarn Shop Crawl, this is a great way to top it off.  Tangled will have a booth and that is where my stuff will be.  Lauren, Valerie’s daughter, will be manning it, so drop by and say hello to her.  Check out Winestains, the crazy afghan that I knit.  This is its first public outing.  Yes, there is still some work to be done on it.

If you use interfacing to support your embroidery on your knit fabic, and you should, be sure to use the water soluble kind.  Now that I know putting a backing on Winestains is a bad idea, I am slowly, painstakingly cutting away the interfacing and hoping and hoping I don’t cut the threads.  Heck. I had some water soluble, but I guess I was too cheap to use it.  Penny wise; pound foolish.
