I must say that I prefer the Kid 'n Ewe fiber fest to this one, but I did enjoy myself here.
The facility, Seguin-Guadalupe County Coliseum, where the fiesta was held was very nice!
Indoors and air conditioned. Although the day outside was beautiful, it was a bit windy, and fiber blows away in the wind. So, it was nice to be indoors. Nice clean restrooms and a snack bar as well.
I think the main purpose of this fiesta was to provide classes. Unfortunately, there was no place where people were setting up looms and wheels. I was disappointed at that since I brought my wheel. But luckily, Suzanne Baker of Cibolo Creek Alpacas was there again, and she let me sit by her booth and spin.
See my previous post on how to wash alpaca fiber.
There were also vendors of fiber, yarn, and fiber paraphernalia.
He did not want to hang out with me at the fiber fiesta. He said he was afraid of growing boobs.
Instead, he went to the nearby Texas Ladies Championship Chili Cookoff. He walked in and asked where could he buy some chili, and an old cowboy with an almost handle bar mustache, asked him to be a judge. He got to sample and judge 12 different chilis and drink free beer. Yep, he was pleased at that.
All in all, we had a great time in Seguin that day. I give the Yellow Rose Fiber Producers Fiesta 4 buttons up.
Update: I spun some of the mohair and plied it with the alpaca. I spun some more so it'd be curly for a nice trim for whatever it is I'm going to make.
