The 2023 New York State Sheep and Wool Festival, “Rhinebeck“, is one of the largest annual gatherings for fiber art enthusiasts in the country. It is always held the third full weekend in October, this year that will be the 21st and 22nd . We love having a booth there! It is an amazing event! We will have a great selection of handwoven rugs, handspun yarn, our sheep horn buttons and more. There are workshops during that week before, and during the festival, sheep shows, live music, 100’s of vendors, beautiful foliage in the Hudson Valley and all sorts of family events. It is wise to book a reservation early if you plan to stay in the area. We are in the lower level of the Horticulture Building, on the left as you come in the big doors. If you have never been to the festival, you really should come at least once, and if you have been before, I hope to see you again.
