Registration for Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival Winterfest is now open at www.lessonface.com/sheepandwool!While we will be returning in May with our usual stellar lineup of in-person classes, we know a lot of you are only able to participate virtually. It’s just not feasible for us to offer online and in-person classes at the same time, so our solution is to bring you two days of virtual fiber arts seminars on Saturday, January 29 and Sunday, January 30. 2022. Winterfest 2022 will be held on the same Lessonface platform that served us so well for the 2021 virtual festival. Visit the Lessonface site above for full class details. #mdsw2022winterfest ...
