NJ Sheep & Wool Festival!
Okay…first of all, the real name is the Garden State Sheep Breeder’s Association Festival (GSSBAF…sucky acronym) and second of all, it’s not like the size of the event really deserves an exclamation point.
Come Join in the Fun!
I know it’s not like MDS&W or Rhinebeck, but the GSSBAF has a lot going for it.
First of all it hasn’t gotten too big for it’s britches like some of the other major sheep festivals. Even the “printable brochure” was clearly cut and past from last year’s event:
The 22nd annual should have been edited to be 23rd, but alas, we have a new way of expressing 23nd.
While this event isn’t huge, it does have a lot of excellent vendors who sell great indy yarns and some decent fleeces and rovings. It’s become an event I look forward to each year, and I am not looking forward to the day when it expands to be as large as some of the more well-known sheep and wool events.
Here’s the Facebook Event link in case you’d like to indicate that you’ll be attending but feel free to let me know if you’ll be there and it’s likely we’ll go somewhere local for lunch after a morning of fiber shopping.
While I didn’t knit up quite as many coffee cup cozies as I had envisioned, I was able to finish up six more.
I had to shoot some better photos of my arts/crafts show items for one of the two shows I’ll be vending at this year, and setting up a mini-display took up a bit more of my knitting time than I’d imagined it would. Only a dozen more of these little items and I’ll have met my production goal!
