My daugther Joey spun up some lovely yarns this month! My sons, Ricky and Wilson, carded up the fiber batts by hand, mostly from wool, tencel, nylon, angelina and tinsel.

Wow! We had a wonderful time at the Conference of Northern California Handweavers in Sacramento this past weekend. There were about 400 conference attendees from CA, NV and other states. Lots of incredible workshops, demos, galleries, and gatherings.
Gosh Yarn It! was fortunate to be one of the vendors at CNCH this year. Somehow, we got quite a bit of our totes, tools and accessories into an 8'x10' space! My husband had built a vendor booth display for previous fairs and shows. He did a great job modifying the woodwork to fit the space.
My daughter Joey helped set everything up, assisted with sales, demonstrated spinning and Tunisian crochet, and was in charge of fixing up and changing the display. My sons Ricky and Wilson helped with taking down the exhibit.
My sister Jessica and her boyfriend James helped out in our booth on Saturday. My in-laws came to visit. Also, two brother-in-laws, sister-in-law and two nieces stopped by to show support!
Joey sold 6 of her handspun yarns (money goes into her college account), including some that she spun up during the conference! She spun up yarns from batts that were custom-carded by her brothers.
We met a lot of nice people, learned more about weaving, and had a great time selling our products.
