Meet Simon at the next Bedlam Farm Open House

The Saving Simon Open House  will be on Columbus Day Weekend, October 11th and 12th Saturday 11-4 and Sunday 12-4.

Bedlam Farm is located at 2502 State Route 22 Cambridge NY  12816.

The Saving Simon Open House artists include me and Jon (of course) also, Jane McMillen’s Pincushions, Carol Way Wood’s illustrated creations, Kim McMillan’s (the same Kim who helps me with my sewing) felted purses,  and Kathleen Nohe’s wrapped stones. 

Jon will be signing copies of his new book,  Saving Simon, How a Rescue Donkey Taught Me The Meaning Of Compassion  ,with Simon besides him.  The books will be available at Battenkill Books and I’ll also be selling them (along with George Forss’ new book, the way we were, an Mary Kellogg’s poetry books)  at my School House Gallery.

Photographer George Forss will be back taking portraits and Mary Kellogg will be reading her poetry.

Jon and Red will be back doing herding demos with the sheep and Deb will introduce you to Fanny and Lulu.  And of course, Lenore and Flo will be around for snuggles.  (Minnie tends to hide out when company comes as a true Barn Cat will).


While you’re here, visit the town of Cambridge NY, just 5 minutes away.   There’s big stuff happening in town over the weekend,  It’s garage sale day and many of the stores will have sidewalk sales.   You can visit Connie and Marilyn at Battenkill Books .  Have Breakfast, Lunch or coffee and dessert at the Round House Cafe.   Visit the Cambridge Artisian Market and Hubbard Hall Store.  Don’t miss Heather at the bead shop, Over the Moon Beads, which sells more than just beads (as if that isn’t enough).  And all the Antique shops .

And if you like Consignment shopping don’t forget to visit Nikki and Vicky at NV Unique Boutique and Consignments, just down the street from Jacks Out Back Antiques. You can also have breakfast or lunch at Country Girls Diner on Main Street and get good food and snacks at the Cambridge Co-op.
