Maritime Fiberfest

(Sorry about the formatting ... Typepad is being cranky this morning. If you see it as you should, then YAY. If you see everything all smashed up together like I do, welcome to my world.)


I had such a good time at the Maritime Fibre Retreat! Here's my nametag to prove I was there. I saw so many beautiful things at the event ....

Tea cozy
This tea cozy was interesting!

Red quilting
What a beautiful example of quilting... just gorgeous.
White coverlet
This coverlet was hand knit, and it is very beautiful. Here are some detail shots:
Bobbin lace
I was astounded by this bobbin lace! 
Rug hooking
Rug hookers were everywhere!

This is part of an example of Anne's natural dye display.
Beautiful shawl
I saw this wonderful shawl at breakfast.
Rug hooked sheep
I liked this sheep.
Sock machine Annie
Annie was busy at the circular sock machine and her spinning wheel!
Isn't Richard cute?
Richard Nametag
Love his name tag ... "Rented Mule". 
Sharon and Caroline
And it was so good to see Sharon and Caroline!
Caroline Sweater
This is Caroline's fabulous lace sweater in the fashion show! It fit her perfectly. It was so pretty!
Thank you so much, Sharon and Richard, for making the Maritime Fibre Retreat such an amazing event for so many people! It was fun to be with so many wonderfully talented people ... it was so welcoming. 

On the Road Again

Lynne and I headed up to the Maritime Fibre Retreat, organized by Sharon and Richard  Orpin, on Thursday. We stayed at a lovely place in Moncton on the way to Nova Scotia called the Rodd Moncton Hotel. We did a little sightseeing on the trip from there to Nova Scotia.

Joseph Salter

Next to the hotel was this monument to Joseph Salter, first mayor of Moncton.

More Mud    MUD

The Tidal Bore in Moncton is remarkable. It fills 25' in one hour ... the river reverses itself. Wow. To me it looks like lots of chocolate mud in a chocolate river.... yummy.

O Canada
The wind was really whipping the flags out in the Nova Scotia tourism centre.

Five Islands
We took a scenic drive along the Bay of Fundy. This picture is in Five Islands, which is a beautiful spot. 

We got to Atlantica, where the fibre retreat is held, and it is beautiful. This panoramic shot is from the deck of our room:

Atlantica Friday Morning

They expect around 200 knitters, spinners, rug hookers, quilters, and weavers to be here. I can't wait!
