Weekend plans: Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival

I forgot to cross-post this to my own journal. Sorry, tcepsa! I'm dragging a not-quite-local friend along, and maybe CK as well if he's feeling tolerant...


In case you are not totally done with fiber festivals and suchlike, there is another one this weekend that is convenient to most of the Maryland Sheep and Wool audience. Please come out and support this one!

The first ever Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival will be held in Berryville, VA at the Clark County Fairgrounds on May 20 and 21*. There will be a sheep show, vendors, workshops, breed displays (more goats! yay!), yarn and fleece sales, beekeepers, baskets, spinners, weavers, felters, and food.

*Various sources can't agree on an end time (4, 5, or 6) but all seem to agree that the fair opens at 9 AM.
