Rainbow Fleece Farm

Although we're still buried in snow, spring is trying to push through and it's lambing time in Wisconsin as demonstrated by these recent photos taken at Rainbow Fleece Farm in New Glarus. I urge everyone to make sure the take the time to visit area farms when they have events to share in the joy of the season, amazement of the beautiful fibers available, and to learn about the HARD work these farmers do every day for us all!

The next public event at Rainbow Fleece Farm
is for the

Spring Shearing Days
W7181 Hustad Valley Rd., New Glarus
April 12 & 13

Election Time
Spring time also means primary elections and I am delighted to report that 2 Janesville City Council candidates - Yuri Rashkin and Kevin Bishop - who took the time to talk to our SnB gathering, survived the primary and now go onto the general election in April. As always, SnB invites all candidates for political office to come share with our stitchers so we will be an more informed electorate!

Project Linus Make A Blanket Day
The Janesville area Project Linus held it's 7th Annual Make A Blanket Day on February 16. "Blanketeers" had a great day together and generated 98 blankets for the children in our area. They also had the opportunity to get up and "stretch" after stitching by learning some belly-dancing moves from Crystal who entertained everyone. THANK YOU to everyone involved for making it a GREAT day!
