As some of you know, I love the podcast Woolful and was featured last year. Through that podcast I have learned so much about fiber arts and I love listening to people's stories about how they began their companies. I've also begun to develop great friendships and relationships with people I've connected with through the podcast! A few of those people were at the festival, so I knew exactly where to go to purchase some of my supplies.
Jill didn't have a booth at the fest because her studio is just over the river, so after I finished fitting sheep Saturday night, we headed across the river to her studio party. The room was packed with people! Steven West, a quirky knitting designer known for his shawls, was there signing books. I got a photo with him and Jill as "Woolful alumni", we all three of us have been featured on the podcast. It's very obvious from the photo who the farmer, the yarn creator and the knitting designer all are! I mean, just check out those knitted pants! Jill also just released her first ever knitted collection and had all the finished pieces for sale. She was also recently featured as part of Etsy's "Quit Your Day Job", so be sure to check that out!
