Mayhaw Festival Plans

Written by: Bobbie
April 8, 2015


Mayhaw Berries on the TreeThe pond is full and the trees are covered with leaves. I just haven’t gone out to see how the berries are progressing. However, the weather has been great with no late season freezes so we are expecting a nice crop again this year.

We are adding some interesting vendors this year. Something for the guys especially but the unique skill will be appreciated by all.

Knife making by Bob Stott. Here is a Facebook link and a link to Rifle and Rod. Bob has made knife making an art along with his ironwork skills. Come and admire the unique tool handles and beautiful finishes. Bob is originally from South Africa. He has made Bainbridge, Georgia his home. We are excited to have him as one of our vendors.

Wool handling. There will be a full setup of handling wool for those of you that like to work with texture. This will be my baby and I can assure you it is a beginner program. I’d appreciate anyone that has a special expertise to feel free to come and give input. We’ll tease, card, spin and try to knit or crochet a little too. The supplies will be available to try some felting. There will be sheep wool, camel hair and some alpaca on hand for us to play with.

Goats for sale. We’ll be conducting a sale of goats this year. Several friends are joining us with a special selection from their farms. Tennessee Fainting Goats both standard and miniature. Dairy mixed breeds both for milking and/or pets.

Raising Goats or Sheep 101. Is raising a goat or sheep like having a dog or cat for a pet? Well, no! We’ll have a seminar answering basic questions about what to expect and supplies needed.

I’ll add information as the next weeks go by. We will have local honey, jewelry, soap and other good stuff. Remember those dates are Saturday, May 9 and Sunday May 10 this year.
