Everyone reported having a great time and seeing a lot of people who expressed interest in crochet and CTC, especially in the informal Fourth Saturdays with CTC. Visitors ranged from kids to experienced fiber friends, including knitters, crocheters, weavers and spinners who were intrigued by the crochet demos. Many left the experience inspired, saying, "I'll have to get back to crocheting again!" One little girl was in awe that Kathy R. had actually made the things she was wearing!
There were lots of cute animals on display, including two baby goats at Rush River Fiber who were sporting sweaters! Some of the farms had sheep shearing demonstrations. CTC member Felicia watched a spinning demonstration and learned a helpful tip about wool socks - always wear silk liners and then you won't have to wash your socks as often. Felicia got to pet an angora goat, who had the softest, curliest coat, and a donkey. She especially loved the miniature Sicilian donkey, even though they don't produce any fiber, they are super adorable and are striking because of the distinctive cross on their back.
