We had a wonderful time at the Monterey County Fair this year. All of our fabulous
weavers were asked to bring their beautiful handwoven fabrics, scarves, clothes, quilts, etc and bring them they did. Our
room was jam packed with every type of handwoven cloth imaginable. We had an educational area complete with silkworms and cotton
bolls, little and big looms to weave on and projects for the kids to take home. Our walls were covered
with judged items with lots of ribbons for the public to see. There was a cultural area with handwoven cloth from around
the world so that the public can see that we live in a world of weavers all weaving cloth to wear, to keep us warm and for
so many other purposes. Our Sheep to Shawl event raised money for the Nanyuki Handweavers of Kenya, Africa. It's
lots of hard work by many guild volunteers but we all agreed we're ready for next year......after a few months rest of course.
