Spring events and farm gatherings

Felting Retreat

Lodging and meals provided at A Wrinkle In Thyme Farm, leaving you plenty of time to become absorbed in several felting projects, either needle felting or wet felting.  Jen Bell will teach 3D needle felting sheep or mice.  Donna Murphy will teach wet felting a hat.  Participate in one of these classes, or bring ideas for your own felting creation.  The farm store is full of inspiration and materials, and we will share our skills.  Meet the lambs that grow the wool we use to felt. $250 for the weekend, with a $40 deposit required to hold your place.  Come just for one of the classes, or for the whole weekend.
