Friends: Past, Present, and Future


Hey there ladies and gents!! Kirstin here, at long last. Boy, have we been busy. Yesterday was our sixth holiday show, out of seven this year. We’ve had one (or two!) shows every week this month. But even with all the set up, break down, hauling, and frantic crafting, we’ve had a wonderful time and met amazing people.

Young and old are fascinated by the wheel.

This is only our second year of doing craft shows, though we are starting to feel like we’ve gotten the hang of it. Just that little bit of confidence has really allowed us to enjoy everything more.

At the Holly Creek Retirement Community, I talked with a woman who raised her children while living in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. A retired optometrist told me about the neurology lecture he was giving. Yesterday, at the Lincoln Meadows Retirement Community, I talked with three high school girls about every step in fiber processing. Their genuine interest, and the openness of everyone else we’ve talked to, makes all the work worthwhile.

Thank you, everyone, for your support.

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.

    Great blog – it most definitely looks like you “have the hang of it”. So good to hear that you are enjoying it more with greater confidence – BRAVO!

    • Thanks Aunt Geri! A post to check in with everyone was long overdue.

      We’ve cut our take-down time down to an hour! Woo! And setting up…still takes an hour an a half, no matter how you slice it. More, if the walk is long. But we all know where everything goes and how everything stacks in the truck. It’s a well-oiled machine. Or at least, it’s a machine.
