Be there or be square! The 103rd Annual Connecticut Sheep, Wool & Fiber Festival!
I’ve gone for the past few years, and it’s a lot of fun!
It’s next Saturday, April 28, in Tolland, CT. They have booths, classes, sheep, llamas, alpacas, rabbits, dog trials, food, etc. If you bring someone who's not into wool or other fiber (odd, I know), they can have fun checking out the animals. My Sweetums especially loves the sheep dog trials--especially the less-than-successful dogs, where the sheep run amok all over the field...not as entertaining for the dog owner, I'm sure.
It's, of course, death on any stash-busting resolutions you may have made this year. There are tons of booths for wool, alpaca, etc. I always manage to pick up a skein or two (or three, or four, or...okay, probably at least ten). For those of you who spin, they have wheels and drop spindles for sale, as well as workshops. They are also going to have workshops called "Sheep 101" and "Alpaca 101" for those of you interested in raising and nurturing your own fiber-stock.
It’s a great time! Can't wait!
