Vermont Shepherd farmers, David and Yesenia Major, have between 1500-2000 pounds of wool that they would love to give bags of away for free.
Major and Post Oil Solutions see an opportunity to perhaps strike a creative spark in the community for the development of a local industry. The Windham Farm Bureau is interested in doing whatever it can to support local agriculture.
Together, the three are co-sponsoring a Community Wool Fest & Free Wool Giveaway on Sunday, April 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m, at David and Yesenia's farm at 268 Patch Farm Road in Westminster. Admission is free, refreshments will be available, and Lerna (an area spinner) will be providing music on her hammered dulcimer.
Several fiber arts guests will showcase the possibilities of this wool.
