Hangtown Yarnival and Pluckyfluff Adventure

From August 31st-September 4th I had the opportunity to participate in one of the best, most exciting fiber events EVER. Lexi Boeger, of Pluckyfluff, hosted a fundraiser earlier this year so that she could build "Pluckyfluff Headquarters"- a studio space dedicated to spinning, teaching about, and showcasing fabulous yarns. The grand opening was this past week along with her traditional spinning workshop. It was by far the most exciting fiber event I have ever attended.

The studio turned out so amazing! It's full of fiber and yarn, but it's clean, bright, and the perfect place to get creative!

My fabulous friend, Craftypuppylover, and I shared a booth together where we were selling out yarns, fibers, and hand knits. We were also fortunate enough to get to camp right in the orchard of the Boeger Winery where the event was hosted. We celebrated all day and spun late into the nights, woke up early, made some pancakes, and started it all again. It was a dream come true!

And the best part of it all is that Ashley of Neauveau Fiber Art created a documentary of the event! Carrie and I were interviewed together and that starts at 44:30. Check it out! It's pretty amazing.
