SAFF

Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival

Can’t wait to see my favorite peeps soon! And, just to be clear…. My favorite fiber peep is YOU!


Squeee! Check out Stephanie's article in Spin-Off! August 26 2015

I feel like I have put on my big girl britches and done something special!  I know there are many others much greater with vast fiber knowledge who have gone before me, but I never thought I would be lucky enough to grace the cover of SpinOff, much less have an article contained with in!

With that said, this quarter's SpinOff has my yarn on the front cover and an article your's truly wrote inside as well!  To say that I am over the moon would be putting it mildly!

The article is about my corespun squiggle yarn.  I hope you guys enjoy it and make beautiful squiggles with it!

I couldn't have done it with out your support and encouragement through out the years.  You guys are awesome and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Georgia Alpaca and Fiber Festival 2014 September 28 2014

Lunabudknits booth
The Georgia Alpaca Fiber Festival was held September 12-14th at the Columbus Convention and Trade Center in Columbus, GA.  This was the third year to the festival and I was thrilled to be a part of it!  Each year this festival gets better and this year did not disappoint!
You know it is going to be a good festival when vendors bring darling little trailers to use as a booth!  Seriously, is this not the cutest thing you have ever seen.  It was her first festival and  a little slice of serendipity that she purchased the sweet little trailer in Columbus last year.
As luck would have it my friends from the Pensacola, FL Barnes & Noble knit night were able to make it and we had a fabulous time visiting and chatting.  One of my favorite festivals of the year is the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival which is held in Pensacola on the first full weekend every year.  And, the LunabudKnits booth has been lucky enough to be juried in for the past 5 years!  It also is a much needed mini vacation at the end of the fall festivals!
I even had a little time to get in some shopping of my own!
Brought back two pitcher plants and love them.
Unfortunately, someone left their pumpkin fudge in my booth and never came back for it.  Fortunately, it was delicious and was my dinner on Sunday night!

Welcome to the new digs of LunabudKnits July 22 2014

Every now and then a girl needs a little change.  There is only so much time to the day and  in between dyeing, carding, spinning, and running the shop, finding a wee little bit for website updates was fast becoming impossible.  

 

An update was entirely long over due.  The switch to Shopify was made and boy oh boy.. Life is so much easier!

 

I would like to thank you for visiting the new and improved Lunabudknits website and hope you enjoy all the pretty fiber we have to share with you!
