I'm going to be one of the crafters participating in the North Andover Sheep Shearing Festival this coming Sunday, May 17th, 2011. I'm hoping to sell my beachy jewelry, and my ReStyle Studios "upcycled" necklaces, and accessories, etc. A friend of mine is also going to be there selling her Vintage jewelry.
There will be food from the Lion's Club, Boy Scouts and a few local restaurants, pony rides and other activities. They are planning to have sheep shearing demonstrations by Andy Rice of Hoggets Farm in Brattleboro, Vermont. Also, a small herd of alpacas from a farm in Andover will be on display in a pen area that is like a petting zoo.
I thought my "upcycled" jewelry made from fabric would be a nice compliment to a festival about wool. I'm hoping people like my newest Shabby Chic/ Eco Chic creations. They are perfect for the summer. They look great with tee shirts or even a sun dress! These necklaces can be found at my ReStyle Studios Etsy shop. Just click the photo if interested. Here are a few examples of a few recent necklaces:
Hope it doesn't rain on Sunday. It's the only day in ages the weathermen are actually predicting to be dry. The festival should be fun.
