Mother’s Day! Father’s Day! Graduations! Weddings! When we come out of the winter doldrums, we really do stack it up for ourselves, don’t we? I need to relax! You need to relax! We all need to relax! And finish up that infinity scarf we have been pecking away at since November! So – who’s in this with me?
Wouldn’t you just love to sit down and work on that project that has been calling to you? I know I would!
On Saturday June 4, we are offering an opportunity for local crafters – or anyone who would just like a bit of leisure time – to come out to the farm for our first Craft-In! Bring a project in progress or a new kit to start, and relax with the alpacas. You can knit, crochet, bead, quilt, needle felt, weave baskets, or glue macaroni on cardboard – it doesn’t matter at all. Do whatever you love.
The farm will be open to crafters, or anyone who just wants to spend some low-key leisure time, from 10:00AM to 4:00PM, and crafters will have the opportunity to work on their favorite projects and interact with the alpacas in a fun and relaxing way. Wayne will be on hand in the barn to guide animal lovers who wish to meet the alpacas. I will be crafting – showing off my expertise in the one knitting stitch and two crochet stitches with which I am proficient. Light refreshments and cool drinks will be provided.
So dial it down a bit, just for one day. Come on out and sit among the alpacas – sit in the studio – sit on the deck – sit beside the trees – and just take pleasure in the crafting experience. Who says multi-tasking has to be stressful – you can catch your breath, enjoy nature, and make some progress on your favorite project.
