    Columbus Day Weekend special event in the Monadnock region: The Wool Arts Tour
    A wonderful experience for knitters, crocheters, spinners, weavers or anyone interested in
    natural fiber arts, it is also educational and fun for the whole family. There are five stops on the tour, each with a variety of vendors, demonstrations and entertainment. For more details, go to:
    http://www.woolartstournh.com/index.htm.

    ……………………………..Excerpt from their website:

    “In 1983 a small group of women came together with a shared appreciation of sheep and their wonderful fiber. Through their dedication and hard work, the Wool Arts Tour was born.

    Over the years, the faces and places have changed, and different species of fiber animals have been added, but the original intent – to share the love and knowledge of fiber and the animals who produce it – has stayed the same.

    The farms and studios on the tour have something for everyone, adults and children alike. Whether you knit, spin, weave or just appreciate quality handiwork, whether you like watching the artistry of ages-old home industries in a modern setting, or whether you just want to watch a demonstration or see the animals who produce the fiber, you will enjoy this weekend jaunt over the colorful autumn roads of New Hampshire.”
