Picking Up My Wool At The Adirondack Wool and Arts Festival


Jon and I won’t be going to Vermont this weekend to pick up my wool, instead, we’re going to pick it from Deb who will be at the Adirondack Wool and Arts Festival at the Washington County Fair Grounds, just one town away from us.

Even though I don’t use wool in my art, or for myself, I still like going to the Wool Festival.  It’s a low-key event, without the crowds, but lots of vendors and sheep.  I like to see the different kinds of wool that people are selling and check out the award-winning wool to educate myself.

And I get to see Carol Law Conklin, who has a booth there.  She’s usually to busy to do much talking, but her booth is one of the most colorful and varied.  I’ve been thinking of using one of her printed fabric pieces to use in a quilt, so I’ll look that inspires me while I’m there.

And Jon’s already talking about getting a new winter hat.  That’s almost become a tradition, his getting a hat, something colorful and unusual to warm and brighten the coming winter days.

  1. Maria, thanks for featuring your sheep individually. It’s interesting to see the difference in coloring and patterns of wool growth in these different breeds. I love Rosemary and Giselle’s curly mops on their foreheads! Gives them character!

  2. The Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival is pretty low key. It’s at the Tunbridge Worlds Fair grounds (no clue why they call they annual fair Worlds Fair). It’s 10/5 and 10/6 this year.
