Central NY Fiber Festival

In the mid June I visited Central NY Fiber Festival.
There were many our local vendors with fleece, rowing, handspun yarns,  handdyed yarns and fibers, spinning and weaving tools, live fiber animals on display. It was not too large as well known Rhinebeck, for example, but it was fun to visit it :)

В середине июня я посетила  Central NY шерстяной фестиваль.
Там были представлены местные производители шерсти, пряжи ручного прядения, шерсти и пряжи ручной покраски, инструментов для прядения и ткачества, а также можно было увидеть живых "шерстяных" животных.

Let's see a bunch of pictures :)

At first, the road to the festival led us up and down through the mountains and countryside.
Сначала, дорога к фестивалю вела нас вверх и вних через горы и сельскую местность.
