Each year local ladies volunteer to make the goodie bags that are filled with yarn samples from local hand dyers. The goodie bags are really project bags. This year they were made Grace (check out her Etsy store for her needle cases, especially if you aren't local and can't get into Urban Fiber Arts to buy one), Debby has been making them each year, and Angela, who made some last year. Here's a sample of the three styles:
Abstract Fiber, Knitted Wit, Three Fates Yarn and Stitchjones. I made stitch markers as did Trtlgrl and Rachel (she sells them at Urban Fiber Arts, but if you have need of some pretty ones, contact her for info.)
Urban Fiber Arts (kits) and The Knitting Bee (yarns and books). We have awesome yarn stores!

The next event I have planned is the World Wide Spin in Public event the weekend before Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in September. It will also be at the Hillsboro Farmers' Market. We're hoping for no rain. ;-)
