Our next meeting is this week: Thursday, March 10, 2016 at — NEW LOCATION!!!— Hudson Valley Midwifery Center, 14 Hurley Ave, Kingston, at 7pm (always the 2nd Thursday of the month). This is Whitney’s new practice in Kingston and we are trying it out as our new meeting location. If you know anyone who isn’t online and might not see this info, please let them know! Bring your wheel or drop spindle for a chance to win a door prize.

Dues are due! Bring $15 cash or check.

It’s time to start looking ahead and thinking about which fairs and festivals you’ll be spinning for this year. The Ulster County Fair pops up before you know it at the end of July, so now’s the time to get those projects going! We try to represent our fiber community and inspire others to join us at this annual event, by filling the Wool Room with our colorful work. And that’s usually our first Fleece to Shawl competition of the season.

We are invited to a practice session of Fleece to Shawl spinning and weaving with the Elmendorph Guild on March 26. Join a team!

  1. The 24th Annual Washington County Fiber Tour is once again taking place the last weekend of April, on April 23 and 24, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both days. This year the free, drive-it-yourself event features 13 farms and a yarn spinning mill, with sheep (several breeds from finewool to longwool), fiber goats (both angora and cashmere), alpacas, and angora bunnies. Check the web site http://washingtoncountyfibertour.org for activities and products, as well as a printable brochure and a map. Washington County is one of the most agricultural counties in Upstate New York. Enjoy our working landscapes and scenic villages as you drive from one farm to the other.

    We would be happy to send a batch of flyers for your April Meeting. Please write to elihufarm@localnet.com.
