Spindle Camp Eve

I finished another set of towels from the Fiesta ware series. I discovered that they're a whole lot easier to wet finish if I put a drier sheet with them. They're labeled and ready to go.

I also wrapped up enough soap to fill this box so it's ready to go too. We'll have a table of stuff for sale and we're also having a fiber exchange, kind of like a Christmas ornament exchange, only with something to spin.
After I got home from the workshop Saturday I started piling stuff that I need to pack on the dining room table. I call this my staging area. I had a CERT meeting last night and had to be in town today for book club so my mind has been pretty scattered. In spite of staying in a cabin, we are camping in a rather remote area, so it's best not to forget anything.

I'm picking Hermi up from the airport in the morning, and then we'll get the food items she wants to take plus ice for the ice chest. We bring all our own food, though there is an abundance and a lot of sharing. We have a Facebook page and the comments have been flying back and forth for the past couple of days. It's a very unusual fiber party, like girls camp, only the girls are now women. We bring fibery projects, however the focus is on hand spindles, hence the name. We enjoy the camping and the lake and eat, drink and be merry. We laugh a lot.

I am fascinated that you sell handmade soap and textiles. I discovered cold process soap making a few months ago and love making it. I am giving it to friends and neighbors and they like it. What will I do with all this soap if I don't sell it. How did you start?
