It's amazing what talented people reside here at Sun 'n' Fun....Some are long term winter residents, others are short term, and a LOT of them were Canadian at the arts show held at Sun 'n' Fun today. When you get a lot of people together, all kinds of cool things happen. Sun 'n' Fun has regular talent shows, murder mysteries, choral group performances, all kinds of stuff. Sparky decided to check out the arts show going on today.....
There was an artist who painted portraits from photos. Doesn't she do good work!?
On to the stained glass shop's Open House with prizes being raffled off, like this three dimensional stained glass hanging....
Time to head over to see some talent OUTSIDE the park---Sparky went to visit A Good Yarn yarn shop in Sarasota, on Tamiami Trail, (highway 41). This shop is one of the most incredible yarn and fiber shops Sparky has seen on her travels across the U.S. WOW!
Sparky had never seen so many sock yarns in her life! This is just one small tiny portion of a wall!
A Good Yarn sells looms, fiber spinning supplies, and specialty yarns. They sell yarns with colorways inspired by the local beaches and waters of Sarasota and Siesta Key. They have beaded bracelet kits and unique beads to add to your knitting and crocheting projects. They have all kinds of the latest and greatest knitting needles.
They have a big group of knitters that come in and sit and knit the day away...When Sparky comes back to the area, she'd like to join them.
Time to get crafting.....See you later.....
