On the Horizon - Fall Sheep and Wool Festivals

Posted




Sheep and Wool Festival

OCTOBER 17 and 18, 2015

Saturday 9am-5pm Sunday 10am-5pm





Fall =   Sheep and Wool Festivals


Hooray for fall! It's the season for many East Coast Fiber Festivals.  We anxiously anticipate ... and prepare for... these festivals.  


We have already done the Finger Lakes Fiber Festival, in Hemlock New York and the Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival, in Greenwich, New York.  

But the Grand Daddy of them all is just over the horizon... The New York Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, New York.


We spent months getting ready for this one... putting together kits, creating new stitch markers, knitting up samples and the like.


You can feel the excitement in the air when you arrive at the show. The crisp autumn air fills your lungs, glowing orange leaved trees and smells of apple cider treats overcome the senses. Of course, the near-constant baa's of the neighboring sheep complete the mesmerizing effect.


This year we will have several new bags to premier. The Metro Bags will have their introduction along with a few new "Tote" surprises. We've created our slick version of the standard shoe box bag.



In the kit department, we've created acorn needle felting kits, gingerbread men felting kits and felted dryer ball kits. We also have ready-made essential oil scented dryer balls for those of you who want to grab-and-go. Scented in either Bergamot or Lavender.


Our Sioule - Huguette Fingering yarn is new this year. We've knitted up a beautiful shawl called " Ornata" by Susanna IC with it. And also cute bobble fingerless mitts that show off the yarn's incredible softness.

So come and enjoy this incredible event in the Hudson River Valley October 17 & 18, 2015.
