nido is bringing the conversation to you. Fiber farmers, spinners, natural dyers and local purveyors will be discussing their stories with us Sunday mornings this spring, making connections between farm to needle.
Join nido and the incredible Tammy White, from Wing and A Prayer Farm, Sunday, March 6th from 10am to 12 noon to learn all about her working fiber farm in Shaftsbury, Vermont. $5 event ticket available by cash at the door.
Tammy will share how to get the most from breed specific yarn farming, starting your own dye garden and sustainable wool dye methods.
Tammy is mom to 3 young adults, and shepherdess and proprietress of Wing & A Prayer Farm in Shaftsbury, Vermont where her fiber flock consists of 6 Alpacas, 13 Angora Goats, and 50 Shetland, Merino, Cormo & Cotswold sheep. She harvests their fiber to be processed locally and hand dyes with natural extractions derived from foraged and farmed materials. Her passions include tending to her flocks and gardens, leading educational farm tours and baking up a storm in her 4-oven farm kitchen.
Please join us in learning how this incredible woman does it all! nido will be serving pie from Tammy’s kitchen and will have coffee and tea to drink. We are asking that people RSVP here so that we can get a feel for numbers.
