taking the show on the road

if you read this blog with any regularity you might know by now that i am thoroughly engaged in my emerging local fiber scene. we have had a growing flock of jacob’s sheep here on our farm since 2005.  we have been raising and dyeing with farm plants since not long thereafter. if you looked over the past decade, you might just say we have been building to what is about to happen this very week. oh gosh. deep breath. we are setting up as vendors at a regional fiber event. Yep, I am actively packing, weighing, winding, sorting our inventory of farm wool products and heading to Asheville, North Carolina to SAFF, the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair. at this very moment thinking about it makes me a bit nauseous honestly. i know that once me, my two youngest kiddos, and my farm’s apprentice load all of our tables and signage and wool and displays into our vehicle and head south east, we will be nothing short of thrilled.

so for the days ahead i will be elbow deep in this

rov

and this

prepare

not a bad place to be. friends, anyone within reasonable driving distance of Asheville, come on out. cheer me on, check it out. there will be hundreds of vendors, livestock and fleece shows and more excitement than i can even imagine.

  1. i know the tremendous amount of work it took to get this beautiful wool to market. I hope you have a blast and sell all you have. If there are any leftovers, will you sell me some? Ashville is too far away for me!
