Fairs and Festivals 

The following is a list of the fairs and festivals which I exhibit and demonstrate at each year. I may be at other shows, as well. Feel free to call or e-mail me for more information. At each event, I will have a nice selection of my wares which include; hats, pizza weaving kits, drop spindle kits, felt a hat kits, felt a ball kits, felted soaps, felted balls, cards with my photos of our sheep, fiber to spin, yarns, and much more. 

In recent years I have been a vendor at several local events such as The Methodist Church Women’s fall/winter fundraiser at The Moretown Elem. School, and the craft fair at St. Leo’s Hall in early December.

Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site in Plymouth Notch, Plymouth, VT   There are several events in summer, fall and the Holiday Open House.  I try to demonstrate one or more times each summer.  You can always contact me to see if I will be there at a particular event.  Many years I have done a reading of my poetry at the Holiday Open House.  Adam Boyce, fiddler, has often accompanied me.

September (Saturday)

Shelburne Farms Harvest Festival held each year at Shelburne Farms in Shelburne, Vermont.  It occurs in mid-to-late September and it’s a wonderful event.  A year is not the same without participating in this event.


February  26-28, 2017 

NOFA Winter Conference is held at The Davis Center, UVM, Burlington, VT.  For many, many years I was a vendor there in the market which is part of the event.  In 2016 I taught a class in how to add income to the farm or homestead by turning the fiber from your fiber animals into yarn or finished products that could be sold.  Half of my students came to my shop/studio during that year, for more instruction.  I loved working with all of those who came.  I hope to teach a class at NOFA’s winter conference in 2018.

Mad River Valley Fiber Fest    (first weekend in November) at The Round Barn in Waitsfield, VT  (on the East Warren Road).  I participated as a vendor in 2015 and 2016.

November (last weekend of the month, right after Thanksgiving)  I was a vendor in both 2015 and 2016, and if I am able to participate in 2017, I’ll be there.

Womens’ Festival of Crafts in Burlington, Vermont.  I have been a vendor at this event for the past two years.  I love the spirit of this event.  In 2015 it was in Memorial Auditorium.  In 2016, it was in the mall in Burlington (right next to L.L.Bean).  I don’t know where it will be in 2017.

 

Here I am with Senator Leahy at an agricultural fair arranged by VT State Dept. of Agriculture, Division of Foods and Markets.  I believe his mother had passed away, and I  shared a story with the Senator about how I remembered his mother who came  with a friend of mine, to visit my display/exhibit when I was a vendor at  a craft fair in Waitsfield, Vermont.  It was many years ago.  He was touched that I remembered her and their visit to my booth.   He called Marcel over take a photo of us and he sent 2 copies to me, which  I appreciated.

    What does the felted soap kit consist of? Is it just the yarn? Thanks for reply
