Last week I went to Heelside Farms with Michelle, who organizes the Triangle Yarn Crawl, and who I now work with on the board for the Carolina FiberFest. I went to CFF for the first time in 2012, not long after we moved to North Carolina. I saw a poster for it at my LYS, and volunteered at the info booth for one day and I was hooked! In 2013 I helped with managing the website, and now I’m on the board to help organize the 2014 event! I’m really excited to be working with such an amazing group of people.
I’m mainly helping with media and continuing to help with the website, which is kind of funny since I’m self taught, and I wouldn’t in any way call myself a website expert. I prefer website competent…most days. Michelle and I decided that we needed some consistent branding and images for banners and ads for Carolina FiberFest, and we decided that since it’s a fiber fest a photo with sheep would probably be the most fitting. Carolyn has been the driving force behind Carolina FiberFest, and her farm is only about a 45 minute drive from Raleigh, so last Thursday we went out to the farm and had some fun with the sheep. I took a lot of pictures, and here are just a few of my favorites!
