• Try your hand at weaving on one of our portable looms

Sorry — no farm tours, and no pet animals are allowed.

More info on Riverslea's website.

I had a great time at the winter indoor version of this event.

I'll be at the summer version also, possibly demoing on a small loom that a friend is bringing. If you want to shop, try weaving or spinning, or just visit a beautiful farm, come by!! If you let me know you're coming, I'll keep an eye out for you!!

I won't be selling anything....I'm not nearly prolific enough as a weaver or knitter to have anything available to sell!

Sounds like a lovely time. Can you believe it, I have never been to NH! There are only a few states I haven't visited and the NH, VT and ME are three of the four!

I'd love to be there.
What will you weave on the small loom?
The picture of the sheep is so sweet!

By the way: my warp still hasn't been woven up: it is long and meant to last the summer. Therefore: no warping/sleying pictures yet. But I haven't forgotten!

Sounds like a great event. Wish I was there. :-)
I'll have to pass the details onto someone who is closer.
Have a great time!

I remember our sheep and lambs like that - so sweet. The demonstration day sounds like a great time.
