Shepherd's Harvest

This weekend is the Shepherd's Harvest Sheep and Wool Festival at the lovely Washington County Fairgrounds in Lake Elmo, MN. From the website:

The Festival was started in order to provide a venue where producers, consumers and artisans could come together and share the excitement of working with sheep and wool. Gradually, the Festival has grown to include other fiber animals such as angora rabbits, alpacas, and goats.

The Festival strives to be a family-oriented event that is not only fun but educational. Numerous classes are offered in the fiber arts...

Many vendors show their wares at the Festival through a juried selection of vendors of unique products. If it's fiber related, you probably will find just what you have been looking for.

Demonstrations are ongoing for sheep shearing, herding dogs, linen making, spinning and knitting. Activities are planned to spark the interest of youngsters.

I don't think I will make it to the Festival this year; if you do, I'd love a report. Enjoy a fiber-filled weekend!
