FibreFest Fun!

Well it was a very busy weekend for Knits by the Sea and company. We packed up the car with some great yarn, shelves and two dogs and headed to Victoria for the Victoria FibreFest. We participated in the Saxe Point Market and were amazed with the turnout! So many wonderful fibre lovers came out for the market it was so great to meet everyone. And a special treat Melissa (pictured above with me!) who is the dyeing talent behind Yarn Candy stopped by the booth to say hi! It was tough to get a hold of her Silk Cashmere fingering yarn by the end of the day as so many people loved her colour combinations!

We also got to meet Ursa the colour wizard behind the beautiful Gaia's Colours. We carry a variety of Gaia's yarns and it was so amazing to see her booth and the incredible amount of colour and beauty she offers with her brand. With so much happening at our table we didn't get to step away to visit many others but it was amazing to meet everyone that came by our booth.

And for everyone who entered a name into the "Name the new mascot" contest we will be picking a winner in July and posting the winner in our July newsletter. So stay tuned for that! And to see all the pictures we took at the festival check out our Facebook page.
