The Kansas City Plaza Art Fair was incredible. The crowds are mind-boggling, I recall reading somewhere that the expected number of attendees were 300,000. I don’t know if I’m correct on that number but it felt like that many people once the sun went down on Friday and Saturday evening.

People visiting our booth, knitters/crocheters and those just drawn by the color, were definitely appreciative and very happy to see an indie dyer included in the fiber artist category. I felt quite honored to be part of this show.

Below are an assortment of photos from the weekend in Kansas City, and several of a new finished project that was on display. There was a second new finished project which I’ll post photos of in a day or so.

Click on the photos to enlarge them for a better view.

The new colorways of Lost City Silk yarns were a popular attraction!

This is a new modification on the Hindwing of the Monarch Shawl.
Notice how much lacier the lower section is. Details and an updated pattern to come soon.
Edited to add: The new modification to the Hindwing of the Monarch Shawl is now available!
Download Monarch Shawl version 1.5!

These guys visited the booth and were kind enough to pose. Colorful fellas, not very chatty though. 
We were open until 10pm both Friday and Saturday night. 

Stage lighting was important to show off the lace designs after sundown.

What’s up next for LCK? We’ll be at the Art on Main in Jenks, Oklahoma on Saturday October 8th, then off to War Eagle Fair in Hindsville, Arkansas the weekend of October 13-16. More to come about the November and December schedule.
