Groomed goats, sheep herding, hand-dyed yarns, lobster rolls…the trip to Deerfield for the New Hampshire Sheep and Wool Festival is worth the 2-hour road trip on the weekend of May 12th and 13th. I wander somewhat aimlessly, appreciating the garments everyone wears to exhibit their skills, admiring the beautiful goats and sheep, delighting in the fibers, watching with respect the relationship between people and their animals in the competitions and the shearing and herding demonstrations. If you have never been, treat yourself and your family to an outing. The demonstrations and classes are free–you may be like me and want to learn how to darn your socks!

We’ll be carpooling from the shop at 8:30 on Sunday if you’d like to join us!
