Concerning Drawings at OFFF

A quick update about the drawings for the Bee Hummingbirds before we head out the door for OFFF:

We will hold drawings throughout both days. No need to rush to the booth at opening time. Instructions will be taped to the Drawing Envelope at the booth.

Take your time, look around, visit the vendors, pet some sheep, goats, or alpacas, participate in one of the many spinning circles, contests, take in the displays and entries upstairs in the Pavilion. There is much so see and enjoy at OFFF, inside and outdoors.

To all of you who live too far away to attend OFFF; future Bees will be posted on our website.

It would be much simpler, and easier not to have drawings, except there are so many people wanting to buy them that only the very first people to crowd into the booth would have bought them all. In fact, they would have been snatched up by vendors yesterday..

We’re trying to be as reasonable and fair as possible to all those who can’t make it to a festival on the opening day.
Plus, it’s good to prevent a mob scene. πŸ™‚


  1. You have a soothing way to explain things. Ed’s success is as much yours as his. Some have copied Ed’s spindles, but not like the real thing. No one has copied your outgoing and elegant style. Being over eighty I may never win the new spindle but nevertheless I enjoy your blog and progress. Nirelle

    1. Thank you, Nirelle. Your comment and thoughtfulness mean much to us.
      I tried sending an email directly to you but it bounced back with a message “…the account may not exist or…”

  2. You know you’re seriously popular when your presence can create a dangerous mob scene! πŸ˜‰

    1. Ack, those dangerous fiber mobs! :O

  3. I love my eensy Antler Bee! I made a two-ply skein and a ply-on-the-fly three ply (chain ply on the spindle). That teeny little guy just spins and spins. Only 9 grams. I’ll have to send you a picture.

    1. Sweet! You’re doing some serious spinning your little spindle! A picture would be fun to see.
