2nd Annual Boston Farm & Fiber!

by Sarah Lake Upton in


I am thrilled to be heading back into Boston on February 10 to vend at the 2nd Annual Boston Farm & Fiber event at the Boston Public Market! Last year was a wild and wooly day, and this year looks like it might be even more exciting!

In addition to all the wooly wonders, the Boston Public market will be operating as it normally does, which means that you can browse the yarn with a latte in hand, and then peruse a range of other local products.

Boston Farm & Fiber Festival (also, a new work space!)

by Sarah Lake Upton in ,


Many big changes afoot here at Upton Yarns HQ, but first:

This Sunday I will be vending at the first (annual, I have been assured) Boston Farm & Fiber Festival held at the Boston Public Market (!!!!!!! I am very excited about this).  The show is being hosted by the good folks of New England Farm to Fiber, on Sunday, February 11, from 10am to 5 pm.

For those of you who may not be familiar with it, the Boston Public Market hosts a collection of local artisan producers of everything from pasta to honey, and of course New England sourced yarns.  It has long been a favorite stop of mine on our "civilized" weekend strolls through Boston.  I'm already plotting my (non yarn related) buy list. 

But back to the fiber event: the vendor list, available here, is full of people I can't wait to meet in person. (The fiber related buy list may very quickly overwhelm the non-fiber related buy list...)

In other news, late this fall we officially became first time home buyers, and as of last week we have moved in (sort of, everything is still in boxes and we have not yet sorted out a reasonable internet connection, but all of our stuff is here, and things are mostly set up enough that it doesn't quite feel like we're camping anymore, which I'll take).  One of the many things that I love about our new house is the workspace off the kitchen that will soon become the new Upton Yarns HQ.

(Yes, that is an industrial sewing machine under the dust cover in the corner). 

But then the movers came and very efficiently moved everything from the old Upton Yarns HQ to the new space.

Dyeing may be a bit delayed while I make sense of all of this chaos......
