We visited the Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, New York on Saturday. A blustery day did not keep the faithful from this wonderful show. As we approached the fairgrounds where the festival is held, traffic slowed to a crawl, and we found ourselves moving a mile in 25 minutes! No matter, the show was well worth it!
Here are some photos I took as I moved through the crowd.
This rug and the following rug were both for sale. Very large rugs with beautiful coloring.
Lots and lots and lots of yarn to photograph, but I concentrated on the finished items. Here are some pretty knitted hats for sale.
Heavens to Betsy's booth is pictured next. It was so crowded, I really couldn't get a good look around.
Next is another rug hooker's booth. Very crowded also. She had some lovely patterns for sale and was attracting a lot of interest.
I saw many booths with needle felting projects. The following photo shows some of the projects you could make from kits that were being sold.
I came upon the next rug in the building that was hosting some of the food vendors. I wondered why it was in this building, and found out it was for sale through a silent auction. Given my fascination with postage stamps, I had to really resist bidding on it.
I have several more photos to share. I'll post those tomorrow.
