Classes, Classes and More Classes!
Last year’s experiment of Friday classes was a big success; much bigger than we imagined. So we are going to continue it this year and add a bigger curriculum. We also have some spectacular classes for new and experienced shepherds.
Our guest teacher for 2014 is Patsy Sue Zawistoski. And our Saturday night event is a talk on antique spinning wheels given by Andrea Myklebust, 7 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn. We’ll see you there!

Fleece, Fiber and Family
The fairgrounds are filled with music, food, artisans and animals.
Events include Minnesota’s largest fleece competition, sheep shearing, fleece skirting demos, book-signings and more.
Families always enjoy the sheep and goats in the barn and this year there will be a new Farm Work Stock Dog Trial!
There’s a lot of room to picnic–weather permitting! Bring your spinning wheel, your friends, and spin the day away.Read more »
