2017 Canceled

September 12, 2017
I just heard from the hotel and they are on 50% power and had several windows blown out.  I am going to oficially cancel this year's event.  I hate to do it but if we go forward and don't have the attendance then our reserves will be wiped out leaving us short for next year.  

Please spread the word and be sure to call the hotel and cancel your individual hotel reservations.

I will miss you all this year.  Let's make next year the best Fiber In yet.

2016 Wrap Up

September 20, 2016

Wow what an event we had this year!  Thank you to all who filled in the gaps left by my absence, from venue searching to communications to demo scheduling you all rocked it!  The new venue was awesome, that lighting was fabulous.  I am not a generally a risk taker but this time it paid off! I hope you all liked it as much as I did.  I have been in touch in with the event planner already about next year.

I thought our Fiber Games for Peace and Friendship (FGPF?) were great fun to watch: congrat...

2015 Venue?

April 8, 2015

I am having no luck finding a new venue. The places are either too expensive (most are running about 5K but one place quoted me 14K and I thought I don’t want to keep it) or too small. The Allure did offer us some incentives to come back this year. So there are three options as it stands now:

1) Pay more which could potentially eliminate some attendees 
2) Go smaller and do pre-registrations for up to a certain number of attendees that the space can hold, I would guess 50-75 for most of the s...

2014 Wrap up

September 24, 2014

The 2014 Fiber In was a success in spite of the leaky conference room and missing linens.  It would seem that the Allure Hotel is having some maintenance issues, it became a running joke and everyone took it in stride.  It is hard to get angry when the staff was so nice about it however, those hotel guests who found themselves stuck in the elevator were maybe not so good humored!  I will be looking for a new home for next year. 

We tried some new events this year, some we will repeat othe...

2013 Wrap Up

September 24, 2013
Another great year of Fiber and Friends!    Thank you to everyone that has participated, it is because of you that the event is so successful.  I have just a few wrap up comments. 
 
First, I almost got my spinning project done, I just have one bobbin full to ply so hopefully by the time you all see me at the Destin Spin In, I will be spinning my wonderful cashmere from India.

As usual I forgot to do something at the event, Diane Chamberlain is the winner of the preregistration drawing.  It...

Reminders

September 19, 2013
I honestly can't believe that tomorrow we will be attending our 10th annual Fiber In.  What has grown from the grumblings of spinning newsgroups about the lack of fiber activities in Florida is amazing!

I have received a couple questions so I thought I would put out a reminder notice for some of the activities we enjoy at the Fiber In.

We will be having the bake sale to benefit the Jennifer Nolletti Art Foundation.  Bring baked goods!

The auction is a big fund raiser for us and helps keeps the c...

Hotel Name Change

August 15, 2013

The hotel we have been using has broken away from the Radison franchise so you will notice a name change.  Our group Coordinator is Regina Morgan: (407) 581-2070.  If you experience any issues booking your room, please contact her directly.  She has assured me that Florida Fiber In attendees will be pleased with the changes in the works including real Chefs in the restaurant.  I told her we had some bad experiences but it is under new management and she is getting good reports on the food and...

What is the Florida Fiber In


The Florida Fiber In is a loosely (and we do mean loosely) organized get together. Held the third weekend in September is about the only thing you can count on happening at the Florida Fiber In. Think of the Fiber In as a sleep over at the yarn store with a bunch of new friends.
