Thank You, Steve

Thursday night stitchers presented
Steve with a "megamug" to express
our appreciation of hosting our
gathering the past 5 years. The
coffee was crocheted while the
steam is wool fiber in the HUGE
oversized mug. Check it out next
time you're at Mocha Moment!

Spring on the Farm

Patient ewes and new lambs were in abundance
at the Tall Grass and Rainbow Fleece Farm
open house events the first weekend in April.
While some events had been canceled due to
the threat of inclimate weather, those SnBers
who came along were able to get a private
needle felting lesson with Patty at
Rainbow Fleece Farm!

Tall Grass Farm goats are famous for their incredibly soft fiber.

The lambs loved Snb Field Trip participant, Paula!

Shearing was part of the activities at both farms
in spite of the chilly spring weather.

New Jacob twins watched the watchers
while others were just hungry!
