Be sure to attend the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival in Jefferson on September 10-12. People of all ages can enjoy exceptionally smart Border Collies bossing herds of sheep, sheep shearing contests, and several vendor buildings with everything from yarn to spinning wheels to animal supplies. Sign up for classes – whether you knit, spin, or want to raise your own sheep or Border Collies – and enjoy the quilt show (wonder if that quilt batting is made of wool?). Spend a day – or all three – and you will find something to enjoy.
