Today was the 99th annual CT Sheep Breeder’s Association Sheep, Wool, and Fiber Festival. I had a blast. It’s not nearly as big as Rhinebeck, but it has all the requisite features of a good event.
AFBC (Assorted Fiber Bearing Creatures)
RRGF (Really Really Good Food)
FR (Fellow Ravelers)
VLFP (Various Local Fiber Producers) (not pictured)
Also not pictured is the fleece sale, the Sheep to Shawl competition, and the sheep dog trials. I know, Bad Blogger. Next year, I promise.
The great thing about this particular event is that the crowds are minimal, so you can get into the various booths without having to elbow your way in and actually see what the vendors are offering for sale. Also, you can maneuver a stroller without people glaring or rolling their eyes at you. In fact, people actually smile at your children which is generally more pleasant for everyone.
Anyway, I picked up my TAS this morning and we all headed up.
We grabbed an early lunch (since we all skipped breakfast)
and a good time was had by all.
Did you go to the CT Sheep & Wool festival? Did you have a good time? Did you score anything awesome? I know that Divine Bird got some incredible fiber for spinning. Anyone else?
