WHY?
We are so excited to be getting the chance to work at the Cloverhill Yarn Shop booth at Sheep and Wool this year we decided to start a blog counting down to the festival. That way we can share some of the cool behind the scenes stuff going on to get ready with everybody else. (Plus, then WE can remember it later, when it all seems like a mere dream.)

The booth is featuring 18 Indie Artists from around the country displaying their yarns and fibers, hand crafted stitch markers, sock blockers and hand carved wooden spindles. We are also featuring Handmaiden (Sea Silk and Flaxen products), patterns from a couple of excellent designers, and some really cool dye-your-own sock yarn kits complete with full color directions.

HOW?
A post each and every day til the fair – so you can countdown with us!!
Updates on what the artists are doing – with pictures!!
Cool Product Features!!
Contests – First Contest TOMORROW!!
FREE PATTERNS!!

ARTIST LINKS!
We know you can see them all in the sidebar – but here they are again, go drool to your hearts content over all of our cool artists!

Hey Jody, just giving you a heads up that the dates for that weekend are actually May 3 & 4. I know because I am trying to be able to go on Sunday even though my parents are coming to Baltimore for a bull and oyster roast that my husband and I are organizing for our Boy Scout Troop. Of course the Roast is on the 3rd (aaarrrgh). Love this idea for a blog though!

Great idea! And how neat to be able to see so many cool fiber artists in one place. I can hardly wait the 27 days!

So sad! I will be out of town that weekend! I love the plans for the Cloverhill booth. Wish I could be there. But I leave Friday afternoon and don't get home until late Sunday afternoon. Sad, sad, sad.
