If you're in the area, the Sheep & Wool Festival is free and filled with fun stuff to do -- like sheep dog trials, yarn spinning and fiber arts demonstrations, a fine art competition, live music, and of course, great shopping for wool and unique hand-crafted items. This festival is huge and attracts people from all over the country and the world.
The Festival is Saturday, May 4 (9am - 6pm) and Sunday, May 5 (9am - 5 pm) at the Howard County Fairgrounds in West Friendship, Maryland. Visit the website for directions and more information: http://www.sheepandwool.org. I will be in the Farm and Garden Building in booth #4. If you come, please find me there!
