We here at Sheepish had a wonderful last six months of 2016, with wonderful festivals at Wisconsin, Ann Arbor, SAFF, Maryland and others. At each stop on our busy 2016 schedule, we were again reminded of the graciousness, warmth, humor and artistry of our Fiber Friends, and we thank them all for making 2016 the best of years for us. So as we close out 2016, we are indeed thankful to you all for being a part of our lives, and for all the joy we derive from being with you at the Festivals.
Since our last show in Maryland, we have been resting, spending time with family and also getting ready for next year. There has been new silk fiber to process, yarn to dye, accessories to stockpile and a million other tasks to complete before we begin the 2017 season. I even washed the van!!
We are getting an early start this year in that our first festival of 2017 is the Magical Fiber Fantasy Retreat in late January at the Swan hotel at Disney World. Amy and Scott of The Ross Farm are leading this 1st time show and it promises to be really great. What's better than Disney in January??!!
Next we will be off to beautiful Ocean City for the DelMarVa Wool and Fiber Festival in mid-February. If it is cold outside, you can always count on the DelMarVa Festival to have the hottest in fiber offerings. Its a lot of fun and we hope you stop by if you are in the area.
Then we are off to our biggest early-season show, the Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival. This year the PK&C Festival will be March 24 - 26 at the David Lawrence Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh. This show is always one of the highlights of the Sheepish season. And why not? There is an unmatched set of classes, an endless list of special events, fiber enthusiasts and instructors from all over the US and the best collection of fiber you will ever see in one place. Pittsburgh is always one of the top highlights of our year, and we really hope to see you there. Online registration is now open.
Again, our very best wishes to our fiber friends, and we look forward to seeing you again in 2017.
