NY Sheep & Wool Festival #sheepandwool2015

Last Saturday my daughter and I embarked on a day trip to Rhinebeck, NY to attend our first ever New York Sheep & Wool Festival. This 2 Day Day Extravaganza of Fiber is a yearly pilgrimage for many. Held at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds it is full of workshops, book signings, lectures, livestock, fleece sales, competitions, shows, parades, demonstrations, food, music, kids’ activities and more!

I have so many more photos but you can check out our Instagram for some more. Did anyone go this year?  If so let me know. I am going to try my hand at felting this year after seeing so many of the whimsical creations at the festival.
