If you’re a knitter or fiber artist, this is a not-to-miss event. The 28 Annual Vermont Sheep & Wool Festival is coming October 1-2, 2016 to Tunbridge, Vermont, a town that’s about a 35-minute drive northeast of the Inn.
The festival has lots to see and do, so where to begin? A good place is in the Animal Barn where you can check out all the fiber-bearing creatures—sheep, goats, llamas, alpacas and rabbits. We wouldn’t have a festival without them! Stop by the Fleece Show & Sale if you’d like to purchase some of the top-quality fleece.
Spread throughout the grounds and various buildings you’ll find the Festival Marketplace, featuring more than 70 vendors offering more fleece and yarn, plus hand-spinning and fiber-crafting equipment, supplies and handcrafted wool items.
Want to brush up on techniques or learn how to create a fiber piece? There will be full and half-day Fiber Arts Classes covering all sorts of topics, in addition to Shepherd’s Workshops for shop owners and future shopkeepers.
