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
