BUS to Maryland Sheep & Wool!!

Nature's Yarns in Fairfax, VA is chartering a bus to go up one day to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival!! I'm one of the ones who thought this would be a grand idea, so I need to get the word out!

The trip will be up and back on Sunday, probably leaving early in the morning to be there for the whole Sheep-to-Shawl contest. If you've kinda wanted to do Sheep & Wool, but weren't crazy about getting a hotel or driving yourself through all that traffic, here's your way around that. PLUS - there's a whole lot of space under a bus for carrying home purchases!!!! The festival is open from 9am to 5pm on Sunday, so it'll be a nice long day filled with yarn, sheep, sheepdogs, llamas, alpaca and COOL STUFF. Did I mention yarn?

Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival Field Trip

8 May 2011 - We're headed to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival!! We're chartering a huge bus to give you plenty of extra room for your acquired treasures! You get all of the fun with none of the parking pains. Cost is $50. Please sign up as early as possible. If we don't get a minimum number of people by 7 April we'll have to cancel.

There will, of course, be a Ravelry meet-up at some point. And there's probably going to be cool buttons again this year, too...

So, call Nature's yarns and reserve your seat! You know you want to go!! (And yes, I called yesterday, so I'll see you on the bus!)
