Later this month I will be flying to California with a few friends to participate in Yarnival- which is being held in Placerville, home of Lexi Boeger.
Lexi Boeger is the spinning force behind Pluckyfluff and the Art Yarn Revolution taking place in America right now. Once she wrote Intertwined and I saw it, I immediately wanted to learn to spin- and I didn't even know how to knit! Now, it's two years later and she has converted an old barn into a workshop/studio/art yarn museum and Yarnival is the Grand Opening! It will take place from Aug 31- Sept 4 at the Boeger Winery.
So, what do you wear to a Yarnival? It's warm there in the Sierra Mtn foothills but cool at night so I will be taking a sweater! It has been one of the hottest summer's I can remember here in Sarasota, so it will be a welcome reprieve from sweating when we get there.
I have been trying to de-stash my sewing and stamping/wool rooms to make room to sew at home while I get through this dental work and have finally got it all organized and can see all the t-shirts on the shelf. I will have 2 weeks to sew like the wind and hopefully will sell some creations when we get there- it will be 5 days of winery guests and as many as 100 art yarn spinners! I look forward to it and if you live there or plan to attend feel free to give me a shout out and we'll get together and spin, knit, share fiber or go exploring.
There are great things on the road to Tahoe which is about an hour and a half away. I want to see the caves, antique buildings and cowboys!
I use a little bit of everything when I make my recycled moon clothing and love the feel of the old soft linen and well worn cotton fabrics. A bit of silk makes it light and the overall feeling you have when wearing it is that you are a very special girl in a very special dress. It does look a bit apocolyeptic. But what a great way to upcycle your favorite clothes into something new and happy!
Hope you are having a wonderfully creative day!
