Twist Festival








Finally I am back .... I have good excuse for not blogging.  It seems I have been living in a state of constant crisis. I have been busy with Doctors, specialists, Detectives, Police Officers, Principals, Vice Principals, a root canal  ..... the list goes on.  I yearn for an uneventful month....maybe then my eye would stop twitching! 

So let us speak of fiber, ahh that beautiful  comforting salve for the soul.  Well, my soul at least.
A while back , I was a vendor at the Twist Festival http://www.festivaltwist.org/ in Saint -Andre -Avellin , PQ.  With a car packed of  my jewelry , mannequins, Natalie Servant's patterns http://natalieservant.ca/ and my vending partner's fiber, Yvonne and I hit the road.

 that's me with my stitch markers, smiling through a  mouthful of  unbelievable pain

The lovely Celine en laine wearing one of my pins.  I traded one of her designs for a pin !http://www.celineenlaine.blogspot.ca/


I will do some more blogging about Twist.  The real pleasure is meeting like minded people and sharing your passion.  I had a lovely time , I only wish that I hadn't been in so much pain with a tooth ache.

Since this festival my line of pins and markers went to the Kitchener -Waterloo fiber festival thanks to Debbie of Sheeps Ahoy https://sheepsahoy.com/home/.  And some huge news is that my line will now be carried in Toronto!!!!  at Lettuce Knits! http://www.lettuceknit.com/ I love that store so much and I am honored to be carried by Sylvie.
