One of my main reasons for trekking north last weekend was to attend the Charlevoix Fiber Festival. I think this is the fourth one I've been to and I look forward to the event each year. This year there were more than 50 vendors from all across Michigan and several other states. I used extreme self-control seldom exhibited before and only came away with 6 skeins of yarn, some roving and buttons. Amazing! There were wonderful Alpaca for you to get up nice and close to -- check out the one with the blue eyes! There also was a nice petting zoo for kids to touch & feel, too. The shots in the middle of the bottom row are the view from my sister Denise's upper deck -- lovely!
