This one was a bit different. It was not held at a fair grounds, but at a living history museum. It reminded me a lot of the Fiber Twist.
The Hubs decided to go with me and it was a long drive…2.5 hours….
It was held in Bristol, RI at the Coggeshall Farm. We were able to go into the small farmhouse and it had a beautiful view….Overheard on the way in…3 local ladies…”Take a minute to appreciate where we live.” (not word for word)
We watched a sheep shearing, done with clippers
And this very interesting talk about flax
Then there were fiber enthusiasts gathered around
This is the ONLY skein I bought!
Once I read it was called “Mamma Mia” I had to have it! Plus they are having a contest! Good Karma Farm
You make something with one skein of their yarn and submit a photo…they will randomly pick a winner. The winner wins 8 skeins in a colorway that you get to name! How cool is that!
I also got the Jacob horn earrings that I walked away from in New Hampshire…I was so happy she was there..Buttons, Strings and Things
and a cool Rocket Sheep shirt from Sheep in the Road.
I was expecting something bigger, but it was a beautiful day in a beautiful area and I got some fun things and had fresh seafood for lunch at a waterside restaurant with the Hubs…all in all a good day!
