Rhinebeck Wrap up

Posted by on

I am finally recovered from the whirlwind weekend officially known as the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival, but fondly spoken of as Rhinebeck.  What a crowd and what a beautiful weekend, if not a little too warm in the afternoons.  Only the true hardcore wore their Rhinebeck sweaters more than 2 hours !  A big thanks to Mary Jeanne from Battenkill Fiber Mill for having me be part of her booth.  She's the lady that makes Hudson Valley Fibers possible.  I want to share some of the pictures that Kathy took.
