The groundhog spoke on the 2nd and said spring will be early. It looks like it this week. The maternity ward here is full of happy, fat ladies awaiting the arrival of lambs. They are munching away on hay, grass and grain feeding their growing babies. They are also growing a new crop of wool. Ah yes…a renewable resource of luscious, soft, glowing wool. A picture of lambs from last year as a reminder of where we will be shortly. We will be fixing up their stalls today in the Heelside Hilton for sheep.
Our Spin/Knit/Crochet In at the Red Barn Studio is scheduled for February 16, 2019 from 10-3 on our farm. Join the Fiber Fun. Soak up the fiber vibes and relax with the creative community at the Red Barn Studio. See you there.
In addition to the Carolina FiberFest yearly event we are having a PARTY on March 16, 2019 at the Expo Building on the NC State Fairgrounds from 10-5. It is a fiber celebration of our move in 2020 to the Expo Building. So, yes, there are two events to celebrate. Both are free admission. The party will have a used equipment sale, an impromptu fashion show (bring your creations to model), a talk on how to wear a shawl and a talk on knitting to flatter and fit. Come, join the fun and party for fiber. We are sponsoring a backpack buddies drop off as well to help the community. Check out the website for all of the info. www.carolinafiberfest.org Everyone who comes will receive a free raffle ticket for the raffle at our yearly event the following weekend.
