The Sweatshop Girls were in Roseburg over the weekend at the Douglas County Fairgrounds for the Business and Professional Women Craft Fair. It was a very long, but very productive weekend.
Being the official Spokes Dog for the Sweatshop Girls, Sabu had a prime spot after setup on Friday night –
It was a lovely time and we met many fantastic people, including roughly half the members of the Umpqua Weavers and Spinners Guild. We’re planning a day trip some time soon after the Holidays to visit all our new friends and acquire some fiber for next year’s projects. Oh, yes, we do have some big plans!
The show was well attended and we hear the Christmas Show is even busier. Maybe next year 🙂 Our lovely sewn bags got their fair share of attention, but sadly (or maybe not so sadly – we’re rather attached to them) we brought them all home with us –
Here is a sneak peek at some of the things we’ll have on display at the next show –
If you’re in the Yachats, OR area next weekend, stop by the Crafts on the Coast Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair. Held each year at Yachats Commons, Hwy 101 & W 5th, the hours are Saturday 10 a.m. -5 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m. -4 p.m.
No trip to a new town is complete without a stop at the local dog park. Happy Tails did not disappoint –
It’s a lovely park in a wooded setting with many oak trees and old fire hydrants scattered throughout. Sabu appreciated the hilly terrain and numerous trees to pee around – The bricks were inscribed with the names of beloved pets and were a nice touch –
We stayed at the dog-friendly Windmill Inn, which was just lovely! We recommend it if you’re visiting the area or just passing through.
Now we recover and get ready for next week’s show!
