Another Opening, Another Show . . . .

Barb and I are pleased to announce that we will be vending at the Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival September 24 & 25 at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Greenwich, New York.  It is not far from Saratoga Springs, a town I dearly love and miss visiting since my daughter graduated from Skidmore College last May.  So not only do we get to have fun at the festival, but we get to visit with Barb's friend Martha and her sheep, and we get to have dinner at Max London's, one of my all time favorite restaurants!

In its third year, the SAFF, which runs from 10 am to 5 pm both days,  is either a great counterpart or counterpoint to the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival (aka Rhinebeck), depending on your viewpoint.  If you love all things fiber and can't get enough of it, this festival is 3 weeks before Rhinebeck, so you can rest up a bit in between.  If Rhinebeck is just too crowded and too overwhelming for you (as it is for Martha), the Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival is much more intimate -- and I have heard they plan to keep it that way.

Visit their website (Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival) to see a list of this year's events and to get a $1.00 off coupon.  The entrance fee without the coupon is $5 (children under 14 free), and there is lots of free parking.  Barb and I hope to see you there!

I love sheep and wool festivals. I went to one in Vermont. They did have one rug hooking booth. I'm a spinner, so it's great for me, but I was pleased to find the rug booth too. Have a great time!! Thanks for the info!
