Where to Find Us This Weekend
This is the last post we wrote before packing up a wildly unrealistic number of knitting projects and pointing the car toward New York’s shimmering Hudson Valley, the home this weekend for two gatherings of fiber folk that we did not want to miss.
If you’re going, too, we would love to see you! Here’s where to find us.
(Today) Friday, October 14
MDK is proud to be a sponsor of Wool & Folk, the all-day party that goes from noon to 7 p.m. today at the Hutton Brickyards in Kingston. Co-founders Felicia Eve and Catherine Clark call it “a celebration of our diverse, inclusive, and extraordinary fiber community,” and we can’t wait.
On Tuesday, October 11 Kay was Felicia’s guest on IGTV live here.
We’ll be there all day, with Atlas yarn to mong (we are yarnmongers, after all) and all the visiting we can cram into seven hours.
There’s so much fun to be had at this bighearted gathering, from watching podcasters recording their shows live at the MDK Podcast Patio, to coordinating meetups with friends at the MDK Meetup Field, to scrumpy snacks from world-famous Milk Bar, the official Snack Sponsor of Wool & Folk.
Atlas loadout! We’re bringing 15 skeins of each color.
And yarn. Tons of great vendors. Including us!
If fun in a beautiful outdoor setting sounds good to you, please join us. Tickets are available here.
(Tomorrow) Saturday, October 15
Tomorrow we’re spending all day in the book barn (also known as Building B) at the New York Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, where we’ll give a talk at 2:00. (What is our talk about? We don’t know! Please bring us your burning questions.)
We’d love to see you, so do stop by. We’ll have Field Guides, of course, and some very tantalizing samples for knitters to inspect.
Sunday, October 16
We’ve reserved Sunday for wandering, lollygagging, meandering, and otherwise soaking up the pleasures of the so-called “quiet day” of the New York Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck. If you spot us, give us a shout!
Whether we see you at the brickyards, the fairgrounds, or on the internet, we wish you a beautiful weekend of knitting.
Ann and Kay
