The Shepherd's Rug was published in April 2006. Our first outing with the book was the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. We sold and signed books from Letty's sheep pens in the sheep barn.
Then we went to the Hoosier Fiberarts Festival in Franklin, IN the first weekend in June. Two weeks later we were bound for The Wool Market in Estes Park, CO where we had a full workshop and a booth to sell/sign books. Mid July we conducted a workshop at Nancy Krohn's in Houston, MN to a group of Shetland Sheep breeders. The end of the July we were in Charlevoix, MI for the Castle Farms Fiber Arts Festival.
The Michigan Fiber Festival was August 19-20. Letty spent Saturday judging the sheep show which included the National Icelandic Sheep Show and a large number of Shetland sheep. On Sunday Letty did a braiding demo and signed books in Pat Terrill's booth.
