FIBERuary-Massachusetts Sheep and WoolCraft Fair

Hello

FIBERuary – Day 5

Massachusetts Sheep  and WoolCraft Fair   Lisa Bertoldi

 

 

The 42nd annual MA Sheep and Woolcraft Fair is coming up May 28th and 29th of 2016. Our fair this year is dedicated to the memory of Cliff Thayer.

This wonderful fair supports the year long efforts and activities of several Four H groups in western Massachusetts. We host sheep shows, two full days of Border Collie trials, competitions in woolcraft and fiber techniques. We are actively seeking items for our woolcraft and handspun skein competitions, and we invite people to compete in our contests! Please look at www.masheepwool.org for more information and for guidelines.

New this year will be an additional food booth, the Wheelhouse Farm Truck from South Amherst MA. Also new this year, is a 100 dollar gift certificate offered by Vavstuga Of Shelburne Falls, as a prize for the handwoven item in the woolcraft competition, winning the judge’s choice.

Our fair is a small but beloved fair. A dedicated and energetic group of volunteers work to make the fair an event of interest and delightful to the broader community. It’s a great weekend in the country, and a great way to celebrate local agriculture among friends.
