Fiber Arts and Farms

I was able to attend the Wool Gathering in Madras Oregon yesterday. 
The best part was spending the day with my friends, who are also fiber addicts. Fiber show, nice lunch then the farm. The drive there was beautiful, only 25 miles.
The major difference I noticed in Central Oregon, from the coast by Newport,
is there is way more alpaca and mohair here. Very many of my friends have animals.
Thunderhead Farm Mohair and Projects

    Thunderhead Farm : Exceptional luxury fiber.
                   Go to this link... great pictures. The scarves and
                    neck pieces from Toni Selk are just gorgeous.
                   She is quite a talented artist.

Shaggy Bears wonderful colors
Every show I attend, she is getting more breeds of wool and more great colors
