Chesapeake Fibershed Meet-up
July 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Rumpelstiltskin debunked: What you send to the mill definitely impacts what you get out.
Join us for what promises to be a lively presentation by Bridget Brown and Patty Sanville on how to get the best results when you send your fiber to be processed. Even if you’re not raising fiber animals, it will be a great opportunity to learn more about how fiber is milled.
Bridget is the owner of Head Spring Farm & Fiber Mill in West Virginia. In addition to being a mill owner and shepherd of a flock of over 70 wool sheep of various breeds, Bridget is a fiber artist who spins, felts and weaves. She is also the chair person of the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival Juried Fleece Sale and a fiber artist who spins, felts and weaves. Patty is the owner/shepherd at Budding Creek Farm in Frederick, MD. Patty has spent the last 13 years learning all aspects of the wool industry and educating youth and adults in the fiber arts as well as the practical side of fiber processing including how to choose the right fiber for the performance you want out of it. Some of the skills she teaches: wool judging, fiber preparation, spinning, knitting, crocheting, felting, and weaving.
