Earth Day







We went to Whole Earth Festival! It went through Friday Saturday and Sunday. My favorite part about Earth Day was that there were some people who were selling hula-hoops and you got to try one. At the end we bought a hula-hoop and my Mom bought a dress at one of the neat booths.
We saw dancers from different countries, regular people dancing and also drumming. There were a lot of tie dye shirts on sale and a few of them I liked. Some of them had hearts in the middle and a few had butterflies and their wings were tie- dye. It was really neat!

CNCH






We went to CNCH! CNCH was a handweaver's confrince. My mom was a vendor for www.goshyarnit.com and I was a vendor helper. When we were at the conference, I spun yarn and did Tunisian crochet. I sold about 5 of my yarns. If you want to know what else we sold just go on to www.goshyarnit.com and a lot of the stuff that is listed on the website we brought and sold at CNCH. I helped put up the booth and the items on the booth. We didn't sell any of the bags but one time we sold 5 spindles to one person! It was really neat.

I walked around the conference with my family and my cousins. We saw beads, cording, fibers, yarn, looms, spinning wheels, shuttles, swifts, examples of woven pieces. We bought some cording and handmade glass beads for my birthday party (we are going to macrame bracelets).
