Brooklyn General's resident Fiberista Heather has organized a bus to take us all to the NY State Sheep and Wool Festival" at the Dutchess County Fair Grounds in Rhinebeck, NY.
The Bus will leave Brooklyn (Park Slope) from John Jay Highschool (237 7th Avenue) at 8 am Saturday, October 17th, 2009. It should arrive in Rhinebeck about 10 am and will leave the fairgrounds at 5pm so you can expect to be back at John Jay around 7pm.
The cost is $70.00 and this price includes your ticket into the fair as well as a gift bag full of tons of cool fiber goodies.
If you are interested in joining in for the day please contact Heather either at the store during business hours (718) 237-7753 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
She will either send you a paypal request or work out the details for cash/check payments.
Interest is starting to pick up so please be aware that tickets are first come, first served. So to be fair, your reservation is secured when payment is received.
Please feel free to message her with questions.
