One of the joys of summer is visiting fairs and festivals. We love the Massachusetts Sheep and Woolcraft Fair in Cummington, MA. Sheep, alpacas,and llamas are on display and it is a hands-on, family friendly event. There are competitions, workshops, food booths and so much to see...especially the very sociable sheep.

The fiber artists have dazzling displays of goods for sale and one can purchase every manner of tool required for spinning or knitting.

Weekend good! As always,

enjoy the day!

What a wonderful event. Hannah is a delightful creature. That's a lot of needle felting!

I love that photo of mom with her twins. Isn't serendipity wonderful? I love how they are laying 3 in a row like that.
