Shearbrooke Farm

For 21 wonderful years, Shearbrooke Farm in Standish has hosted our Summer Fiber Art Workshops. This summer of 2015, we are moving about 10 miles west, to route 113 in West Baldwin at Julie Yarbrough's Kick The Moon Studio. We will enjoy our gourmet luncheon as usual, and expand into lots of class room space, dye kitchen and extensive fields for tents. Saco Valley Fiber Artists welcomes you to join us for a day (or two!) of sharing weaving, dyeing, spinning, rug hooking, felting, basketmaking, and more. We are excited to continue offering our small and creative classes, led by the same enthusiastic teachers you remember from Shearbrooke Farm.

Please join us for a creative summer day at Kick the Moon Studio! Rain or Shine...
