Maryland Sheep and Wool Virtual Festival


The Spruce Ridge Studios booth at the 2019 Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival

The Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival is always the first week-end of May and something that I always look forward to.  This year the festival will take place virtually and Spruce Ridge Studios will be participating!  I will have a "Festival" special and an exclusive decorative pillow for sale on Saturday and Sunday.  Here is a link to the vendors (but you can't use it until Saturday):

Please note that the marketplace/vendors will go live on Saturday around 8:30 am. So you won't be able to see much until then...but if you were attending the festival in person, you would not have access to the vendors until 8:30 am when the gates opened on Saturday anyway!  I think that's part of the fun!

There were many new patterns added to my website over the past year...including two new pattern collections!  I am proud to be representing the artwork of Robin Leuschen as rug hooking patterns.  I have always loved her whimsical, wonderful designs and I could see a hooked rug in each one.  I can't wait to start hooking my first "Robin" rug!  There are so many wonderful patterns to choose from...but I think I really like "Just Keep Swimming"...oh wait!  I love her little snowman in a snow globe too....or what about the turkey design...or the "Farmhouse Christmas?"  I can see my summer is going to be busy hooking away!

I have also taken over drawing the patterns for Red House Wool Studio/Cathy Greschner.  I have always been a fan of her Orange Sink blog and her lovely designs, so I was quite honored when Cathy decided to turn the sharpie marker over to me and enjoy her retirement!

I do hope you'll shop the Maryland Sheep & Wool Marketplace...look for my virtual page and check out my website.  I plan on shopping too!  I've had my eye on some yarns that are just delicious.  I think it's important to support the other small businesses, especially now.  The pandemic is not quite over yet and I know that every small business needs a little extra support until they can get back out on the road again.

See you tomorrow!
