If you are thinking about joining us for the Gale Zucker photography workshop, you might want to get your registration in soon. The class will be limited in size in order to give each of us the attention we need (or, at least, I need!). That being said we need to have enough people sign up to make it worthwhile for Gale to travel all the way from Connecticut to teach us. This is such a great opportunity to learn from a professional (who really gets the whole knitting/spinning/fiber thing) in a non-intimidating setting. And we are going to have a lot of fun while we're doing it!
Check out Gale's blog and here to learn more about her workshops and then sign yourself up!

Well, I do believe a good time was had by all. We've been getting a lot of positive feedback from attendees and vendors and people are already talking about next year! That's a pretty good sign, don't you think? We'll be having a wrap up meeting soon and planning for next year will start immediately after, so any suggestions you have for making us bigger and better will be gladly received.

Meanwhile, the wreckage here at home does not seem to be straightening itself out. The yard..oh my! It's a jungle out there! We are finally having a day without rain and I've made the first pass with the ZTR and will need to do the whole thing all over again in a day or two (if it's not raining) to make it look decent. Meanwhile, my vendor space tent is half-way open in the garage, drying out, and there are boxes and bags piled everywhere. Mike and I were reminding each other this morning that this is the month we always start thinking we are crazy to be out here in the boonies with all these animals. The grass grows so fast and the weeds in the garden are growing even faster. And.....It.Won't.Stop.Raining. Next thing we know, it will stop raining and seem as though it's never going to rain again. Kentucky weather!

Gale covers a lot of information in two days and, from the reviews I've read of past workshops, we will have a great time while we're learning. As an added bonus, on Saturday evening after class, we will be taking a short Llama Trek on beautiful Seldom Scene Farm, which is not far from here and belongs to my friend, Lindy Huber. We'll be served wine and cheese and have a chance to see Lindy's studio while we are there. There will be plenty of photo opportunities both here on my farm and on Lindy's farm.
Please consider joining us for this terrific opportunity to have fun and learn a lot, all at the same time!

It sounds as though the weather may give us a break, at least on Saturday and maybe part of Sunday, so come on out to Masterson Station and enjoy watching the Bluegrass Classic Stock Dog Trials, some good food and great fiber shopping opportunities. Honestly, there will be something for everyone at this event. Stop in and visit with Olive and her friends while you are there.

I've been trying to get myself ready for the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival. I can hardly believe it is nearly here. Way back in the fall when we first started meeting to plan the event, it seemed we had ages to get it all together. Now we are just days away and I'm working myself into panic mode! I think it's going to be a great weekend. We have over 60 vendors coming and I think that's a great turnout for our very first year. I'm hoping for beautiful weather and a big crowd. Are you coming?
