The entrance (side) to the Morrill Family Farm Museum. Inside the musuem building is the Annual Fleece to Shawl competion. Below are pictures of the teams. I so wish I had gotten back there when they were done to take more pictures, but unfortunately by the time I got back, they were gone. )o:


Thankful the weather was nice all weekend and full of customers.

Our friend & another booth helper/seller. Sue Maurer makes awesome felted hats!! She found this 'blockhead' flyer to show her husband. It would make it easier for blocking her felted hats.

Ken & Charlene Schultz from Honeybuns Rabbitry & Apiary, and Terry Collard, a weaver friend from Harrisville Designs.
Looking at the customers coming out of the building beside ours.

Looking at our display. Our new hanger from my dyed Romney rovings.
Joyce May. One of our booth helpers/sellers. Looking into the front of our building.

When Shari & I arrived to the fairgrounds on Thursday to mark vendor spots, the front (left) looked like the back (right) and was missing part of the roof. We could not get into the building until Friday at 2 pm to set up. Needless to say, this set my schedule back by quite a bit. We were still working on our set up Saturday when our customers arrived. I don't like having to rush around like that. I much prefer to be rested to greet people.

But, we still had a good weekend and I thank all of those who purchased from us. I am working this week on getting this on the Etsy site. So, stay tuned.

Thank you for sharing all the photos! Many of the vendors don't like pics done, so it is nice to be able to jog my memory on the beautiful booths!
