Registration for our 2021 Fiber Arts Seminars is now open!

Registration for our 2021 Fiber Arts Seminars is now open at https://www.lessonface.com/sheepandwool.

Classes will be taught via Zoom, and all you need is a computer or tablet with a webcam that is connected to reliable high-speed Internet. Topics include crochet, dyeing, ecoprinting, felting, knitting, spinning, and weaving. Most classes are two or three hours long; there are several classes that consist of two two- or three-hour sessions with a break in between; there is one two-day class which has two sessions each day.

A downloadable version of the class descriptions is available here.

We will once again be accepting ONLY online registrations. We will not be using Eventbrite for registrations this year. Instead, we will be using the Lessonface platform for both registration and access to the online classes.

Materials kits are required for some classes. These kits will be purchased directly from the instructor. Ordering instructions will be available in Lessonface once you have enrolled. To allow enough time for the kits to arrive prior to the start of class, registration for those classes requiring materials kits will close on April 3. For all other classes, registration will remain open until the class starts or the class is filled, whichever comes first.

If a class is full and you want to be added to the waitlist, this year you just click the “Join Waitlist” link on the class page in Lessonface. Easy!

Your first point of contact if you encounter any problems with the registration process should be Lessonface themselves. They are are available seven days a week. Specific questions about the classes should be sent to .

If you didn't brave the weather to come to last week's festival, but still want a festival t-shirt, you're in luck. Our online store at is being restocked with 2022 merchandise and should be ready by Monday, May 16, 2022 (they just need a little time to unpack the boxes that came back from the festival and see what's what). If memory serves, they will have two colors of short sleeve tees, a long sleeve tee, hats, aprons, fleece vests, sling bags and cinch sack/backpacks. Sorry, the large canvas tote bags are all gone.The online store is at www.sheepman.com/product-category/maryland-sheep-wool-festival-online/. You can also purchase these items in person at the Ceresville New Holland, Inc./Sheepman Supply Co. showroom in Frederick, Maryland. #mdsw2022 #festivalgear ... See MoreSee Less

If you or anyone else receives an email claiming to be able to sell you a list of attendees of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival, please ignore it as IT IS A SCAM. It has come to our attention that companies are emailing some of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival’s exhibitors and attendees, claiming to offer our attendee email list. This is a common occurrence with large conferences and trade shows in recent years.It is our policy to NEVER sell, rent, or share attendee contact information. No company is authorized to distribute or sell any email lists of Festival attendees. The Festival is not providing this list nor generating these messages. How did they get your email? Software programs can crawl websites in search of email addresses that are listed on them (identifiable by the @ sign).If you receive an email offering to sell you a list of Festival attendees, do not respond to it. By responding—even with a request to unsubscribe—you confirm that your email address is a valid one, which may increase the likelihood that you’ll be contacted again. ... See MoreSee Less

This little lost lamb kid's mitten was turned in to the Lost & Found and would like to find it's mate. There is also a handmade shawlette someone might be missing, along with the usual random assortment of items -- reading glasses, etc. -- and, no surprise, a folding umbrella and a pair of rubber boots. Message me or email if any of these sound like they might belong to you, or if there is something else you would like me to check for. #mdsw2022 #lostandfound ... See MoreSee Less
