Most sheep and wool festivals take place in the spring and fall during shearing time. I enjoy visiting them with my family, getting inspired for new projects, shopping for fleeces, and seeing all the creative artisan talent in my community.
Here are some highlights from my visit to the Connecticut Sheep, Wool & Fiber Festival a couple of weekends ago. I’ve been going to this festival for several years. It’s on the smaller side, but I always run into people that I know and that’s fun.
