MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

Shearing Day at MV/HV Fiber Farm …


Saturday, May 9th was the Shearing Festival at the Hudson Valley Fiber Farm. in Hopewell Jct, NY.

Susan and Patrick threw a great party.

Lots of people. Lots of good food.

There was terrific music, compliments of Sax ensemble from the local high school.

Gorgeous wool and yarn to be had.

And of course shearing.


Patrick and Jeff, the shearer.

The sheep seem in a ‘zen’ state.


Beautiful Cormo wool.

The goats & kids are a tad muddier than…

… two weeks ago, but entertaining  and adorable as always.

Thank you Susan, Patrick, Erin, Harry and everyone involved  for a terrific day.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)

  1. I have to get over to the Fiber Farm here. The yarns look gorgeous. I like to crochet and knit. Your photos are great.

  2. My daughter is a big knitter…she would have had a field day with all that beautiful brightly colored yarn..
