MAFA 2017 - some photos
7/23/2017  Millersville Unversity, Millersville, PA
Just a smattering from the Fashion Show and the Sp
The Fashion Show items were on display this year. For some silly reason, I did not take photos of all of the 18 lovely items. But my favorites are here. And there are a few from the Spinning Games, where 18 spinners got a box of 5 "fibers" (feathers?, ribbon, beads?) and had a half hour to make a yarn to be judged. Tom Knisely emcee-ed the event, and the spectators appeared to enjoy it.
