I have been such a bad, bad blogger for the past month or so, but I am finally coming up for air to participate in some self promotion. In case you wondered what happened to my blog, well, I've been toiling hard as can be gearing up for The Black Sheep Gathering, a sheep and wool festival to be held at the fairgrounds in Eugene, Oregon, from Friday, June 20th through Sunday, June 22nd. I have been working on my handpainted rovings and sock yarn and will have a huge array of colorful rovings for spinners and beautiful variegated sock yarn for knitters. For more information on this fun fiber festival, go to: http://www.blacksheepgathering.org/.

Capistrano Fiber Arts Studio will be sharing a booth with Sandy Sitzman of Woolgatherings (Banks, OR). Sandy is a dyer extraordinaire and will be stocking our booth with her beautiful spinning fibers as well as some handpainted yarns. Please come visit us in Building 3, Booths 49 and 50.
Here are some pictures of a few of the fibers I will have on hand in our booth. The top picture is merino/bombyx silk (50-50) and the bottom picture is alpaca/merino/silk (50/30/20). I will have many, many more colors, and and we will have a variety of fiber blends -- something for everyone who loves to spin. Sandy will have some superwash rovings, too.

Along with rovings, I will also have loads of my superwash merino sock yarn in most of my popular colors along with some new colors.

My friend, Margie, will be helping out in our booth and we'll be leaving next Monday for a little road trip on the way up so that we can explore along the Northern California and Oregon coasts. We'll be all relaxed and raring to go when BSG opens up on Friday, June 20th. Hope to see lots of our friends there.

For anyone who can't make it up to Black Sheep, I will be reopening my Etsy store when I return on about June 25th so check back after that date. Here's the address for my Etsy store: http://CapistranoFiberArts.Etsy.com/

Good luck on the show and I hope you sell all your fiber and sock yarn. I'll tell my friends who I know are going to look for you.
