A friend of mine asked me to go. She lives in NJ, two hours from the festival. I live in NY, 3 1/2 hours from the festival. Do you think it’s worth the drive? Has anyone evern been?
I can’t wait
it’s supposed to be reallly good, lots of fiber . One year my knitting teacher met someone there that lived in her area that had an alpaca farm. So she got two from them so there’s always some sort of opportunity!
and it’s about a 3 hour drive for me…
I will be going. Last year was my first time and it was amazing. It can be totally overwhelming, but don’t let that turn you off. It is about 2 hours south of me, but well worth the drive, get there early, you could really spend 2 days there. Make sure you have some projects in mind, because it’s really easy to get distracted once you see all the roving, yarn, etc. I hope you go and have a great time.
Would be nice if this link/topic could be combined.
I posted some pix and my fanatical feelings about this fantastic show… would love to say hello/meet for a coffee with anyone who is going. I think I’m going on Saturday but not definite yet. (Sunday if not Saturday but I think I want the Sat energy this year, although I’d like to go BOTH DAYS)!
Note the name: it’s about Sheep and Wool,
not knitting per se.
Though of course there’s plenty of knitting-related action.
Tons of good stuff to buy from small vendors.
And sheep – acres of sheep, doing their thing.
I’m planning to go Saturday and connect with some friends who are vendors.
