We once again participated in the Western NY Fiber Arts Festival at Emery Park
in September that show has grown since last year...
We attended a Fiber festival at
The Greater Buffalo Knitting Guild
had a great time and can't wait till next year
in early Nov 2014
I did a Home School presentation on fiber arts in late October
I demonstrated fiber preparation from shearing, to a finished item the kids did a make and take felted soap in fall colors it was a very chilly day but a great time was had by all 15 children and 10 adults. If you are interested in something like this for your home school group, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put you in touch with the person who organizes the llama experience events, that include intro to llamas, a walk with llamas & lunch in the woods, llama fiber, shearing to spinning and a make and take craft (there is a Charge for this ).
We had several Classes at the farm store this year. We had our usual drop spindle, spinning classes, that we have every other Thursday, check our face book fan page for dates & times it gets shuffled around a lot. then we had, silk scarf dyeing and Roving dyeing, everyone had fun at both and made some awesome scarves and yarns from there work.. I am hoping to have needle felting and wet felting classes this coming year.
We had our largest shade tree fall...Just bang fall, I was on my back porch when it happened...that was a close one!!
Our beloved herd Sire Erick past away... so missed is this gentle spirit!
I will meet you on the other side of that rainbow bridge my dear friend!
