The New and Improved Cabin Spring Farm WEBSITE is finally functional. Needs a few tweaks but O.K. for now. www.cabinspringfarm.com .
Got it up just in time for the Fields of Gold jubilee festival. Fields of Gold is an agritourism venture in the Shenandoah Valley region. FOG just finished the first year of promoting agritourism by finishing a listing and map of 130 sites in the area, one being Cabin Spring Farm.
We celebrated at one of the vineyards, with some great local food, some good networking and socializing, a few speakers, and a few displays. I was going to set up a display but we were delayed getting there (more on that later) and the display space was taken up. John and I were both glad because that meant we could eat and mingle instead of sitting at a display.
I made a contact that wants 4 pounds of fleece for stuffing dolls. All in all a very pleasant evening.
On the way home, I remembered I have to be up early tomorrow morning to greet 5 or 6 kids that don't have school again. I am excited. It is too cold to meet in the fiber shed, so we will go down to the cabin, at least for the morning. I actually met the grandfather of one of the summer fiber campers at the function.
Yesterday, was the last session of the fall after school workshops at the MRMS middle school. Being Halloween, there were only 2 students. Much more relaxing than 13.
A good week fiber wise, and storm wise as well. We did get snow flurries on and off all day, but nothing stuck. High areas of WV, not that far away, got MUCH snow.
I hope many people will visit the Cabin Spring Farm website to keep it in a good position and some feedback would be good too.
