Fall is here…and with it the VT Sheep and Wool Festival

We are all in a twitter here in South Hero getting ready for the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival….THIS WEEKEND! Where did the time go? Jim has been turning yarn bowls all week and I have been spinning some new “designer” yarns. We are as ready as we can be.

This year Jim is bringing his small lathe and will turn drop spindles for his adoring fans! He will be out in front of Dodge Hall under cover – let’s all cross our fingers for the weather!

So, are you interested? The Vt Sheep and wool Festival is at the Tunbridge World’s Fair Grounds.

Helping small businesses

Yellow Dog Farm is a small business. When something like Tropical Storm Irene passes through, I cannot imagine what a small business can do…

The devastation and the costs to continue are so high – in people hours and money.

Yellow Dog Farm was lucky – for this storm we sat high upon a rock in the middle of the lake. Not so lucky were our small business friends in other parts of the state. In fact, one of our very own artists at Grand Isle Art Works, potter, Jeremy Ayers is working hard to reclaim his studio and working space in Waterbury.
