Bittersweet in the Wild: Mass. Sheep & Wool

 

Massachusetts Sheep & Wool Show
Saturday & Sunday, May 26th & 27th
Find us in Barn 5

 

The clock is ticking and preparations are going smoothly as we get ready for the second show of our year, Massachusetts Sheep & Wool (aka Cummington). Cummington is one of my favorite shows as a shopper; a nice day trip and neither too big or too small to make it worth your while if you only have one day to spend. Located in the back of beyond, it’s a beautiful drive and a fun mid-size show.

This is our second year vending at Cummington and we’re looking forward to an expanded double booth. Last year’s stall was only 8×10 and there wasn’t room to turn around if more than two people were in there at one time. It’ll be nice to spread out properly and give people a chance to get in and really see the product.

 

Just look at that crimp! (Pale lavender to cream to sky blue.)

 

I’m a little shorter on stock than I’d like to be, but we’ll have that rectified come the fall shows. While quantities are limited on some lines, there will be plenty of Goodies Unlimited (including Wood Beams), a sampling of all the new Wheel Candy fiber blends, and patterns by Jesh. I’m especially excited to note that there are lots of new colors and breeds of F’Locks fresh out of the dye pots for this show, including Teeswater lamb, Shetland, and Merino lamb! The Teeswater are luminous, and I have a feeling they’ll go fast for spinners who like to play with locks.

I hope you’ll stop by the booth and say hi if you’re coming by the show. I give hugs for free to those who want them and I always have chocolate to share.

    I’m looking forward to see your booth in the show. And is the free chocolate for real? My daughter would bug you endlessly if she knew you were kidding. LOL.

    The one thing about moving to the midwest that I dislike the most, is the lack of wool! and the lack of you! This is my favorite show also! As you know :) I know you’re going to do awesome! Enjoy the ride!
