But now we are getting ready for the Michigan Fiber Festival, August 15 - 17 at the Allegan County Fairgrounds in Allegan, Michigan. We are excited to be going back to Allegan. Sheepish has always enjoyed the Festival, and we have many friends in the area that have met us at prior shows, and that we keep in touch with online throughout the year.
Pam will be teaching a class, Knitting With Roving, on Saturday at 2 pm. During this 45 minute mini-workshop, the class will learn how to knit with roving, and everyone will be making a potholder from the knitted roving. There is no pre-registration for this mini-workshop, so please remember to stop by the Information booth once you get to the Festival for the location of the workshop. The cost for the mini-workshop is $ 15, which includes the workshop instruction plus a kit containing the needles, pattern and roving to make 2 potholders.
Plus, we are excited to showcase our new linen (vegan) yarns and horn/bone shawl pins which we will be bringing to the Festival for the first time. We hope you like them as much as we do!
Michigan has another special place in our hearts in that our daughter Leslie graduated from the University of Michigan earlier this year, and if you mention to either Pam or Dave that you read this fact on our blog, that will be worth a 10% discount on all purchases over $ 30 at the Sheepish booth during the Festival.
Sheepish will be out in the tent, so make sure and look for us at the Festival.
We are looking forward to seeing you next week in Allegan!!
