More Fun at the Farm

It’s always a treat to visit Mimi Luebbermann’s Windrush Farm in Petaluma. When I asked her if she would do a guest post for my blog she mentioned that there will be a spinning class beginning next week–October 1. Just being out in the country is special, but learning how to spin yarn from a sheep’s fleece is the icing on the cake. I think there are two sessions.
Lamb and Boy

She told me about a flea market she has in the fall where people bring what they don’t want to keep in their stashes anymore and take home new stuff. 
I went to her holiday sale and farm day last fall and look forward to going again.

There’s always a Holiday Sale paigegreenpattybrown31314-203at the farm: dyeing, spinning demonstrations and of course, seeing the sheep. (Lambs don’t come until the spring.) I forget when the day is to see the sheep getting sheared–but that is a really nice thing to do, too.
