Hi! Oh YEAH! I'M DEFINITELY GOING! I can't tell you how much I love this festival. I think it might be better than Stitches East, although I can't say for sure coz I haven't been to Stitches but this will be my third year at Rhinebeck and it's the highlight of my year.
You really really really ! should go.
It's so much fun. I say it might be better because it's spread out in different buildings and if it's a nice day it's so pretty to walk around. There's food and cheese and wine samples. Lamb kebobs... But the vendors and their yarn! WOW. My husband goes off and watches contests by dogs or something, some fun stuff, and when we get tired we sit down in oneof the tents where they are parading sheep and llamas out and telling about their finer points, stuff like that, it's cute. I always get the most amazing yarn, I wish I had bunches of money coz you have to be careful and pick and choose. There are angora rabbits, I got some angora yarn last year. And I got spindles the year before.
You just pay at the gate btw, I forgot how much but it's at the website. You should GO! If others are going we should definitely meet up. Maybe I'll do a seperate post.
