Mother's Day at the Historic O'Keefe Ranch

We were asked to take part in a Mother's Day Fibre Fashion 'N Tea at the Historic O'Keefe Ranch last Sunday.  We normally don't do outdoor shows but we thought this one would be fun and so glad we did.  It was a lovely day and the sun was a little warm so we were thankful for the tent that was provided.  This was our display where we had samples of our many items sold in the local yarn shops.  It was nice talking with people who came by and recognized our work.  Some even shared with us about what items of ours they had used on their hand knit or crocheted project and even shared photos of them with us.

We did polymer clay demos throughout the day where we would show how we make a "cane" and then sculpt a flower from it.

We also had our "Snap Decisions" collection available.  Customers seem to really enjoy picking out their different "snaps" to create their interchangeable jewelry pieces.

This is Althea and her sister of Intwined Fibre Arts in Salmon Arm.  They were set up next to us for the day and were busy spinning.  The selection of fibres and wool they had were in such yummy colors that were hard to resist.

The Historic O'Keefe Ranch had many other activities going on all day such as sheep shearing, pony rides and stage coach rides which passed by us on a regular basis.

The afternoon tea was really done up old fashioned style with the old style teapots and teacups and home baked goodies.  There was a fabulous fashion show hosted by A Twist of Yarn.

My camera wasn't cooperating too well to keep up with all the models so I managed to get one to pose for me.  Here she is wearing a gorgeous red hat and infinity scarf and with our maple leaf shawl stick.

It was a fun day and for a show like this was actually quite relaxing.  It was a nice way to spend Mother's day.
