Clermont State Historic Site

Located in a beautiful spot right on the Hudson River. I’ll be here with my sheep-themed pottery and ceramic accessories for the fiber enthusiast, including diz, buttons, and yarn bowls… This year I will adding new colors and styles as well. Hope to see you there!
from their website:
The Chancellor’s Sheep & Wool Showcase is a family festival that celebrates historic fiber arts, culture, and craft. We host a shopping concourse featuring over 30 skilled artisans and local craftspeople. This is a great place to support small businesses! As the first of the wool festival season, we are the place to get over your cabin fever with brilliantly colored yarns, roving, and hand-woven scarves. Craft guilds will demonstrate spinning and weaving throughout the day. Herding and sheep shearing—using three different historic techniques!—form the centerpiece of the action. Find crafts for kids, 18th century reenactors, and live traditional music all in one beautiful location! The price for entry is just $8 per vehicle ($6 for Friends of Clermont) so fill the car up with family and friends for a day of shopping and fun!
