We love this event and have participated for the last 3 years!  We do FREE demo’s on carding, spinning, felting, and felting.  Kids of all ages can try their hand at carding raw fleece, or learn how to wet felt. The farm sheers their sheep (which is totally amazing to see), they do milking demo’s, plus it is a full day of fun activities! Stop by and check out our booth!

For more info about cost, and times check out Maplewood Farms here. We will have regular store hours at the shop all day.
