Spring Appearances

It feels very strange to not be packing a van to head to the NH S&W Festival today. Family circumstances, a book to finish on the heels of lambing season and a general energy lag are all contributing factors in this really tough decision. Sometimes you reach a moment when you say to yourself, "whoa – something's got to give." I send my love to everyone there and look forward to being back in my usual spot at the festival in 2011.

Here's where you can find Foxfire Fiber this spring:

WEBS Fleece Market and Tent Sale, Saturday May 15, Service Center Road, Northampton, MA

I'll be joined by the bottle lambs, Mistral, Georgia and Garamond for the day – this is your chance to meet them in person! Of course, I'll have yarns and spinning fibers and even some lamb notecards for sale in my tentWebs pulls out all the stops for the tent sale, unbelievable bargains on great yarns.

Massachusetts Sheep & Wool Festival, May 29 & 30, Cummington Fairground, Cummington, MA

where I'll be hosting a Booksigning – Melissa Morgan Oakes and her brand new book Toe Up 2-At-A-Time Socks!

– And a reminder to Sheep Shares members – our lamb visit open house day at the farm is Saturday, June 5.

Speaking of appearances, let me tell you about today's movie: 

– starring Zap, our last lamb. He is so clutsy and looks like he's wearing pj's one size too big because he hasn't filled out yet. He shuffles around, following the others, learning to keep up with the big kids.

– with a cameo of  the bottle lambs, playing spin the bottle!

– and Georgia enjoying some tlc

– and one dandelion-mowing lamb, oh so handy.

Happy Friday!
