I have several coming attraction announcements to make, but today I wanted to announce something we've been working on for a while now. We are having a Special Guest at the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival this year! Susan Anderson will be teaching a fun workshop on Saturday morning and in the afternoon she'll be signing copies of her new book, "Spud & Chloe at the Farm" (plus, she has graciously offered to sign any of your "Itty Bitty" books, if you bring them along). My copy arrived yesterday and it is such a cute book! It's a Knit-and-Read Book because there are farm animals to knit and a story to read aloud to your favorite little person. Susan is the nicest person you would ever hope to meet and I know she has lots of fans here in central Kentucky. If you're interested in signing up for her workshop, keep checking the festival website because the sign-ups will start soon.
It's hard to believe that the festival is only a little over 10 weeks away. Of course, there are many of us who have been working on this year, since right after the end of last year's festival. It's going to be even bigger and better, with lots of new fiber and equipment vendors, more food vendors (we heard you!), great workshops and classes, more animals to visit in the livestock tent (where I'll be!) and most surely we'll have nicer weather than we are having today!
