Fridays are for spinning

Most Fridays a number of us gather to spin and knit at Fred's, officially known as Roaster's Whim, a wonderful coffee shop in Dunham Hollow, NY. We're there from 1:30 till about 5, anywhere from five to twenty of us. We're called the Heritage Spinners The ambiance is wonderful, the coffee terrific. Baked good are available, too. What more could we want? A yard to sit in on lovely days? Check. A fireplace AND a wood stove? Check. We love it there.
Today I noticed that three of us were spinning fiber from the same place: Buckwheat Bridge Angoras . It's the farm our first Maremma came from. Sara and Dan have Angora goats, cormo sheep, and process all their fiber in a solar mill. It's a wonderful place. They sell kid mohair/cormo blend roving that's out of this world. It's the one thing I'm sure to buy at Cummington and Rhinebeck, though unfortunately they won't be at Cummington this year. I indulged at NH Sheep and Wool for that very reason. They also spin yarn and knit socks.
We love them and you would,too. Find them at a festival near you.
I haven't yet figured out how to insert a link, but in theory you should be transferred to the Buckwheat Bridge website if you click on the title of this post. We'll see.
Didn't work. Go to I'll learn
Post Script: Thanks to Melanie, I learned to link!
