Happy Birthday and congratulations to shareholder Leslie Cooper, who has a lot to celebrate at the moment. Leslie won one of Susie Gibbs' flocks of sheep in this recent video/essay contest, and we couldn't be happier for her.
Like a lot of us, her sheep and fiber obsession came on strong and doesn't show any signs of letting up. She's worked hard, taught herself a lot of skills, overcome some big obstacles, and continues to reshape her life. With her gentle spirit and love of people, she will grow a strong farm and business.
Leslie will be teaching an art yarn workshop here at the farm on July 23, so if you've missed any of the earlier art yarn workshops and seminars in the area up to that point, you'll get another chance. Art yarn spinning is really more fun than allowable by law with your feet on the treadles, and she has such a gift for it. Watch for more updates to come.
Let Leslie's story encourage you today. What is your dream? How hard are you willing to work to achieve it? How far out on a limb will you go to see it realized? How can I help you reach it? How can this community support you? We're here... just ask...
