At the Armeda County Fair these brothers are showing their Shetlands. Photo: Letty Klein. Check out the unique fleece display at the Calhoun County Fair, I thought this white Romney fleece was pretty nice, even with a little “frowsiness.” Photo: Jan Wadlington. Here is a nice example of a Romney fleece at the Calhoun County Fair. Photo: Jan Wadlington. At the Michigan Fiber Festival I judged the fleece show in front of a very attentive audience. I love to see folks so eager to learn about fiber! Here I'm with Selden Collins, of the Upper Peninsula (U.P.) in Pickford, Michigan, with her Supreme Champion Fleece, a charcoal gray Corriedale.

I taught a 2-day rug braiding workshop at the Michigan Fiber Festival. The weather was so hot, not conducive to working with wool, but the gals were hard-working. Photo: Letty Klein. Fifteen very industrious gals endured my 2-day rug workshop at the chilly Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival in early September. Just look at the piles of braids on day two! Photo: Letty Klein. This is Ricky Lacasse with his moorit Grand Champion Shetland Fleece at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival. Photo: Garrett Ramsay. This fleece was the winner of the Champion Rooed Shetland Fleece and Reserve Champion, from Kelly Little Bartels, Monroe, Wisconsin, at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival. Photo: Garrett Ramsay.
