It’s almost time for Twist Fibre Festival and I could not be more excited! Over the last few months when not at shows or out adventuring, I have been working away on lots of new fibres, yarns, kits, garments and more more more for Twist. Admittedly my shop and website updates have been kind of sporadic – it’s tough to manage all the things I do, so I have stopped guilting myself about it and simply decided to update things when I can.
Anyhow, back to Twist! Twist takes place in August in a really beautiful part of Quebec. It’s a really nice place to visit and the people are really creative and lovely. I noticed a totally different vibe about this show – people were open minded and interested in the more fringe stuff that I like to create, rather than just standard yarn + pattern = garment.
I sincerely recommend you making Twist a part of your summer fibre activities – you will definitely not regret it – plus, there is good food, and beer, and workshops (including mine!) and more!

Also – if you want to have a lot of fun learning to create your own woodland themed felting projects, and try your hand at woodcarving – take my Woodland Felting Workshop!
Details on the workshop are available at the Twist website here: http://www.festivaltwist.org/en/workshops-2015/
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the workshop – I would love to hear from you. Sign up! It’s going to be a blast and you will get access to my secret treasure trove of fibres and nature finds. I have also found a really amazing woodcarving tool kit that you will get to take home and have some really fun ideas.
