Dublin Craft Fair

The Dublin craft fair was this weekend and what fun! It was geared towards kids and they had a wonderful time learning to spin…although some of the younger ones just had fun making the spinning wheel go around.

I managed to get quite a few samples of different types of fiber displayed and there was a lot of interest at feeling all of the different fibers that can be made into yarn. I think the most popular were the yak, angora and bamboo. Even the adults enjoyed touching all of the different fibers.

I did learn that selling at a busy fair and a spinning demo/teaching doesn’t play well together. If it wasn’t for help in the booth there is no way I could have managed both. Many times there was a line of kids that wanted to try spinning. This left very little time to help customers and answer questions. But I can’t help but feel it’s worth it. Its wonderful to see people (kids and adults) connect the dots from wool to a spun yarn. Being in the fiber world so much I tend to forget that not everyone understands the process.

It was an exhausting…but fun processes. Now to get everything posted on Etsy and figure out the next show.
