Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair

Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair

FarmGirl's Clara and I are second from the right. 2009
I'm so excited about traveling up to Asheville to SAFF for the weekend. I've twisted Noah's arms (it took both) so he'll be coming along and will be helping me show my Jacob Sheep. He will also show a couple in the Youth Show.

In addition to seeing many different wool sheep breeds, llamas and alpacas, there is a spectacular Fiber Fair with vendors coming from all over the country! Yarns, roving, fleeces, supplies, art, etc. Three whole days of technicolor fiber! And friends, too!

In addition, I'll be trading one of my 2010 ewe lambs for a pretty ewe lamb from Patchwork Farm in GA and I'm buying a yearling ram from Swallow Lane Farm in GA. This will invigorate my Jacob breeding program quite a bit!
