We'd like to inform all our local readers of a great opportunity to go to Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. Centre Knitters, the local knitting guild, is sponsoring a bus trip there on Saturday, May 6, and we think you'll enjoy every minute of the ride and the festival. Nonguild members are welcome with open arms and can buy bus tickets at our shop.

You can leave the driving to the bus driver, win door prizes, eat a great dinner on the way home, and YOU CAN SEE MORE YARN THAN YOU CAN POSSIBLY IMAGINE! In addition to shopping till you drop, there are lots of other fun things to do: watch sheep shearing and working sheepdog demonstrations, listen to music and storytellers and enjoy some good food. Also, from the Navajo Museum of Window Rock, Arizona, Navajo Men Who Weave will be demonstrating their skills and sharing their rich history with festival goers this year.
It's even more fun if you go with friends!

The bus leaves the Target parking lot in State College at 6:15 a.m. The guild is willing to pick up riders in Lewistown and Harrisburg if you live in one of those places.

Our store is helping the guild by accepting checks or cash for the bus ticket. (Note that we can't accept credit cards for payment because this trip is not through the store.) Tickets are $37.

If you want a ticket, call us or stop by the store!
