[Sheep] Business Saturday


Because shopping with Maisie is way more
...um...interesting than going to the mall!



We are developing an exciting new program here in the commonwealth (Kentucky is a commonwealth, not a state), The Kentucky Fiber Trail.  Kentucky is already well known for it's Bluegrass Trail (horse farms) and Bourbon Trail.  Now you can discover fiber farms throughout the state as well!  


Okay, so let's set up an event and give this a try!  Our farm shop (and barnyard) will be open this Saturday from 1:00-4:30 for Small Business Saturday.  We'll call it Sheep Business Saturday :-D.  

We'll have calendars, fleeces, roving, spindle kits, Christmas cards and ornaments, wool sheep pins, a few wool wreaths, maybe some felted sheep and for fun, let's make Maisie Orneries!  I'll have a basket of "Ornery"  supplies set out and teach you how to make your own wool roving wrapped ornament.  

So, come hide out (bring your wheel! :-) on the farm with us this Saturday and take care of all your sheep and fiber-y gift giving needs.  We promise you won't be mobbed by fellow shoppers...unless you have cookies ;-).  If you need directions, just drop me an email.

WOW what an event. Looks like fun. Thanks for the invite. Will we get hot cider again?

I think I'm going to keep a tea kettle warming on the stove :-).

Oh! That sounds like so much fun! (Definitely better than what I'll be doing - persuading shopaholics to buy clothes they don't need) Sigh. If I have to work retail in order to make ends meet, taking off the weekend after Thanksgiving will never be a possibility for me. :(

Such an exciting project and I'm sure Saturday will be a wonderful day at the farm(shop). Someday I will get to Equinox Farm, someday, someday.

What a great idea! I wish I lived closer so that I could attend too.

What a great idea! I hope you have a very successful day.
And Happy Thanksgiving to all the inhabitants of beautiful Equinox Farm (human and animal), but especially to you, Sara, for allowing so many of us to visit your farm, whether physically (I wish!) or virtually. Your photos are wonderful and your words a delight. I always check in at least once a day to see what’s new. Thank you so much for sharing your life with us.

What fun! We had hoped to be in southern Indiana this week but neither of us felt up to traveling since our recent bouts of crud. Happy Thanksgiving and have a fun time!
