North Hero's Report

Champlain Valley Fiber Bees 8th Annual Fiber Fest

By Dawna Matthew

On August 12, several of our members made the drive down to North Hero, Vermont, and attended the Champlain Valley Fiber Bees 8th Annual Fiber Fest. What a fun filled day! There were beautiful rugs on display, loads of door prizes, a “tea cup raffle” with endless items to win and an auction with everything from hand crafted wooden bowls to wool bundles your stash cried out for! The food was plentiful and delicious. And if that wasn’t enough to keep one happy you could shop with Lindsay Krauss from Green Mountain Hooked Rugs, Mary Lee O’Connor from Hooked in the Mountains and The Crazy Janes with their colourful clothing.

It was so nice to meet up with hookers from all over the area and admire their wonderful projects. Plus Queen Bee, Lynn, kept a smile on our faces all day long!
