What to bring to the Fiber In

Posted by Brenda Varner on Thursday, September 8, 2011, In : 2011 Update 

This question comes up alot so using a partial repost from last year here are some of the things on my packing list:

Fashion Parade:  My most fabulous hat!  I brought it into the office yesterday to show it off and it was very well recieved.  All agreed that Kate should invite me to tea to be close to my hat never mind my sparkling personality :-)  If you haven't made a hat bring something to wear in the parade - it is great fun!  And there will be prizes.

Auction items - one of the main wa...

2011 Contest Announcement

Although I am not one to typically get caught up in other people's lives the pageantry of the Royal Wedding caught the attention of the little girl living in my heart.  And then it occurred to me that the Fiber In had chosen to visit England at this year's event.  Could we have been more spot on?

2011 Announcements from the 2010 Florida Fiber In

Posted by Brenda Varner on Tuesday, September 21, 2010, In : 2011 Update

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.
