My favorite show of the year has rolled around again: Rhinebeck, formally known as the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival. I'll be heading up the Hudson on Friday, enjoying the autumn colors along the bluffs. Here's the scoop: The Festival is held at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds, Saturday, October 19, 2013, 9 AM to 5 Pm, and Sunday, October 20, 2013, 10 AM to 5 PM. For more information, go to the website: New York Sheep and Wool Festival.
Barb and I will be in Building A, Booth 28, just like last year. Come and visit and see my just finished rug, The White Whale Tavern. I hooked this rug to look like an old trade sign, using 1 inch strips of fabric ripped by hand. The texture is amazing. I dyed up a new background color for this piece, which I call Blue Whale, and I'll have a few pieces available for purchase at the Festival.
