2008 CT Sheep, Wool, & Fiber Festival

This festival continues to grow, and this year it was held Saturday, April 26. Very well attended, lots of activities, workshops, and shopping, shopping, shopping. My friend Lisa accompanied me, and as the photo illustrates, had a great morning. We were excited to find an Ashford spinning wheel priced lower than online, already assembled and ready to use, so we purchased it for use at the museum where we both work. Besides the shopping – I bought a pound of white roving – I enjoy seeing the sheepdogs work and the wooly critters that supply us with those fibers so dear to the hearts of fiber artists everywhere. It was a very enjoyable way to spend a pleasant spring morning.

It’s all about the sheep:

and the alpacas:

and the people:

and all the irresistable goodies:

Sigh…. Maybe before next year’s show I’ll have hit the lottery…….
