2013 Wrap Up

Posted by Brenda Varner on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, In : 2013 Updates 
Another great year of Fiber and Friends!    Thank you to everyone that has participated, it is because of you that the event is so successful.  I have just a few wrap up comments. 
First, I almost got my spinning project done, I just have one bobbin full to ply so hopefully by the time you all see me at the Destin Spin In, I will be spinning my wonderful cashmere from India.

As usual I forgot to do something at the event, Diane Chamberlain is the winner of the preregistration drawing.  It...

I honestly can't believe that tomorrow we will be attending our 10th annual Fiber In.  What has grown from the grumblings of spinning newsgroups about the lack of fiber activities in Florida is amazing!

I have received a couple questions so I thought I would put out a reminder notice for some of the activities we enjoy at the Fiber In.

We will be having the bake sale to benefit the Jennifer Nolletti Art Foundation.  Bring baked goods!

The auction is a big fund raiser for us and helps keeps the c...

Hotel Name Change

Posted by Brenda Varner on Thursday, August 15, 2013, In : 2013 Updates 

The hotel we have been using has broken away from the Radison franchise so you will notice a name change.  Our group Coordinator is Regina Morgan: (407) 581-2070.  If you experience any issues booking your room, please contact her directly.  She has assured me that Florida Fiber In attendees will be pleased with the changes in the works including real Chefs in the restaurant.  I told her we had some bad experiences but it is under new management and she is getting good reports on the food and...

Anyone want to organize a yarn bomb in honor of our 10th anniversary?  I have no clue how to accomplish this but I am sure there is someone who does :-)

Demo Requests

Posted by Brenda Varner on Friday, April 26, 2013, In : 2013 Updates 
It's time to start getting those demo ideas flowing!

Got something to share - offer a demo.
Want to learn something - request a demo.

Remember sharing is the heart of the Florida Fiber In.

Also, I need a volunteer to organize the demos. This is probably one of the funnest but takes the most time. Duties include: collecting the offers and requests, developing a poll to determine the most popular and then communicating with the demoiers to develop a schedule that works for them.

Attention Vendors

Posted by Brenda Varner on Friday, April 26, 2013, In : 2013 Updates 
Returning vendors please let me know your intention to return in 2013 by May 20, 2013 via email.

New vendors, get into the drawing for a coveted spot in our vending room by sending me an email. I will announce the new vendors before the end of May.

Email dolphn1829 at yahoo dot com put Florida Fiber In Vending in the subject line. I get a ton of junk mail, this will make sure you don't get deleted.

Like everything else at the Fiber In, vending is a donation. Usual donation is the ...

Can you believe this is our 10th anniversary?

Posted by Brenda Varner on Monday, March 18, 2013, In : 2013 Updates 

Since we are going to Ireland what is more fitting than an announcement on St Patrick's day :-)  Tell your friends, we have the whole ball room again this year.  Let's make this our best yet.  Get those ideas flowing, please post them no matter how wild.  Your wild idea might just spark someone else to have an idea that is doable. 

Our dates are Sept 20-22. I have signed the contracts for the hotel, we will be back at the Radison.   They are ready to receive your reservations and I had them ad...

What is the Florida Fiber In

The Florida Fiber In is a loosely (and we do mean loosely) organized get together. Held the third weekend in September is about the only thing you can count on happening at the Florida Fiber In. Think of the Fiber In as a sleep over at the yarn store with a bunch of new friends.
