Sheep Shearing Festival

June 6, 2011

We had such a GREAT time at the sheep shearing festival at Maplewood Farms!  A big shout-out to Courtenay at the farm who organized such a fantastic day.

A big thanks as well to all the amazing Baaad Anna’s volunteers who helped with teaching felting, spinning, knitting and dyeing to all the kiddo’s – thanks to tash, nicola, sara, lian, amy and lynn – couldn’t have done it without you!

Here are some photo’s of our day – and watch here for details of the cleaning/carding workshop we are going to host for the fleece we got from the festival!
