That means Vermont Sheep and Wool weekend!! Will I see you there?
Its a sentimental favorite for me. I’ve been going since at least ’02. I brought home my first spinning wheel, my bunny rabbit, my second wheel and lbs and lbs (and lbs) of wool from this festival. It is much smaller then even the NH Sheep and Wool, I think its actually getting smaller every year, and I don’t mean that as a negative. The number of vendors and classes might be shrinking but the event seems more intimate and more local every year. More small farmer/producers is a unique and special thing. Three years ago the festival moved (again, its been in Killington and then in Essex previous years) to Tunbridge VT which is just a few miles up the road from where I live and perhaps the loveliest place for a fair grounds. To me it is every thing something Vermont-y and sheep-y should be.
