Fall is definitely in the air! With Labor Day behind us and the first day of school checked off the list, the amazing summer weather we had has disappeared and has been replaced with reasonably warm days and cool, crisp nights. The official start of fall is only a week away! Crazy, but also invigorating – even for this lizard.
Fall is a tremendously busy time at WEBS. New classes are now starting and are posted on-line. We have a great line-up of special events too! One of our favorite events of the year is our annual bus trip to the New York Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY! This year we have two buses reserved and we’re looking forward to a great time.
The buses will depart the WEBS parking lot on Saturday morning, October 16th at 7am sharp! Bring your own coffee or morning beverage of choice and we’ll provide the baked goods. The trip to Rhinebeck is always fun with trivia contests, giveaways and anticipation of the day to come. Once in Rhinebeck everyone is welcome to enjoy the festival at their own pace. Everyone should be back to the buses by 4pm for an on-time departure back to WEBS. The bus trip is really the way to – skip the stress of driving, parking, etc and just sit back and enjoy the foliage (hopefully), some great camaraderie and especially your purchases on the trip back.
Cost of the trip is $45.00. We are well into the second bus already so if you don’t want to miss the opportunity, it’s time to register!
If you are planning to make a weekend of it, two other items of note. We are the official sponsor of three of the teachers who will be running workshops over the course of the weekend. Our own Gail Callahan, aka The Kangaroo Dyer will be teaching on Saturday, the lovely Edie Eckman is teaching on Sunday and the faboo Melissa Morgan-Oakes will also be teaching on Saturday.
On Saturday night, the annual Ravelry party will be in full swing and we are happy to be a sponsor of this not-miss event! More details to follow!
