We can hardly believe that it’s nearly time for the New York Sheep and Wool festival again! The festival is held in Rhinebeck, NY, on the third weekend in October: this year it falls on October 15 and 16. We’re really looking forward to spending the weekend at NYS&W introducing new Ravelbabies Eloise and Carson to all the good things that Rhinebeck has to offer! (Well, lots of the good things anyway – we’ll save the cider donuts for another year.)
We have two meetups planned during the day on both Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 1 pm. The location for the meetups is shown on the map above – it is a shaded field down the walkway from the author’s tent and behind the bounce house and great big fun slide. Come and meet your fellow Ravelers and get a Hello! username button.
For more information or to chat with other Ravelers about the meetups at Rhinebeck this year, please check out our meetups thread in the New York Sheep and Wool group. We wanted to remind everyone that there will be no nighttime Ravelry party this year, but judging from discussions in the Rhinebeck group, Ravelers are planning to take over just about every hotel lobby in the area with some group crafting on Saturday night. ;)
We are so excited to see all the beautiful fall leaves, sheepdog trials, fried pickles, friends, and of course all the yarn, fiber, and other goodies that NYS&W has to offer… see you in Rhinebeck!
