March at the Farm

 

Felting Friday

Friday, March 10 and April 7
1 to 3 pm

Great for beginners as well as inspiration for seasoned felters! Make a Thyme Tile, start to finish, or bring your own project.  In March, we will be felting Collecting Sap.  In April, we will do a whimsical cat.  Bring your tools or use ours.  Please let us know if you are planning to attend. $30 includes fiber materials.

Farm Spinning

Wednesday, March 15 and April 19
10 to 2 pm

Bring your wheel (or knitting) and join us for a free spinning group and potluck lunch. I believe this is the BEST way to improve your skills and enjoy the day. And if you already know how to spin well, join us and share. Questions?  Send me an email.
Roving available to purchase in the farm store.
