Knitting Fair

South Beach Yarn Co at KYAFF

This past weekend we had the pleasure of being one of 80+ vendors at the KYAFF (Kawartha Yarn and Fibre Festival). KYAFF was a single day event held on June 8, it was well attended by knitters, crocheters, spinners and felters. My  booth was located in the micro market which is an area designed specifically for small companies like mine.  I met so many wonderful, creative people. Two of which were Shelagh and Margaret from the Three Sisters Knit podcast on YouTube. If you have a chance to check out their podcast I think you might like it. Shelagh purchased a skein of my super soft baby alpaca, cashmere and silk yarn in the colorway Steel Ribbon which she plans to knit into a shawl. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product.

At the festival we were able to set up and test drive our new booth. This winter we purchased gridwall, hooks and baskets to display the yarn in all its prettiness. We found last year that having the skeins in crates just didn’t show them off properly. I loved being able to put the full skeins on display. Above is a picture of me behind the booth after set-up on Friday night.

At the end of the month I’ll be at the Muskoka Yarn and Fibre Festival in Bracebridge. I hope to see you there. Here is a list of the fibre festivals I will be attending this year.
