This has been a very busy week with the Eaton County Fair. My daughter has been showing Chickens and Alpacas. Last week I shared the fiber that she helped me dye and some of the yarns I have created from the fiber. This week, I gifted the yarn and batts to her 4H group so they could experiment with Fiber Arts during fair week. I was amazed how their faces lit up when I pulled out the yarn and roving. They actually squealed with delight when they saw the drop spindle and lap loom. Right away, one of the girls started to cut yarn so she could finger weave some bracelets. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
Teaching kids is easier than you would think. Ok, teaching teenagers is easier than you think. I was surprised how quickly they figured out the weaving and the spinning. By the time I returned to the fair on Thursday, they had already spun through two batts of fiber. Their yarn looked great too! Sharing the Wonder of Fiber Arts and Alpacas with a great bunch of kids is a total rock star experience. I sure hope that their excitement this week continues on. Now, share your adventures in Fiber Arts!
