Update on my plans for the New England Fiber Festival

They say nothing worth doing is easy and this is proving to be true. I got into the Tunisian Workshop I really wanted to take, but the Assabet Bus has been cancelled do to lack of interest. Thankfully, I was able to get a spot on the Woolpack bus. It is a more challenging, but it will work. It also means Assabet is less likely to offer trips like this in the future, which is also sad. I was hoping if there was local interest, I might have a chance to take advantage of more opportunities for these types of events using local transportation.

Fiber Festival of New England

I always seem to hear about great fiber events after they've passed or too late to make plans to register and arrange transportation, but this year I seemed to have gotten slightly ahead of the curve for Fiber Festival of New England located in Springfield at the Big E.

The event is being held November 1 and 2 9-5 on Saturday and 9-3 on Sunday. You can find out more about the event here.

For those of you interested in not having to drive to Springfield I found two local options. Assabet Technical High School's Adult Ed Program is offering a bus to the festival that includes the cost of admission. The course is called Fiber Festival of New England. The course number is CRO-F14. The cost is $45. You can find the details at Assabet's website here. You can register here.

The Woolpack in Acton is also offering a bus that includes the price of admission. That bus leaves at 8:00 and the price is $50. You can check out the details here.

Not sure if I am too late to register for a Tunisian workshop. That is next on my list to check out. However, I am glad to see I finally got my arrangements in order for one of these events.
