A Woolly Summer

The Sassy Ewe has been one busy lady.  Spinning and knitting her way through events all summer long!

You can find Sue Ann, The Sassy Ewe, next weekend working her woolly magic at Hartwick Pines in Grayling, MI.  The annual Black Iron Days will be going on and The Sassy Ewe wouldn't miss it!

 Here is an excerpt from the Grayling Visitors Bureau:
"Hartwick Pines State Park will host the annual Black Iron Days Festival on August 23rd-24th, 2014; the largest annual gathering of blacksmiths in Michigan. Over 50 craftsmen and women will be on hand demonstrating their trade at the logging museum located at the park.
The two-day event, taking place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, also will recreate the sights, sounds and scents of an historic sawmill cutting logs into boards. Watch woodworkers, weavers and wool spinners as they show how their crafts were done in the era before power tools. Full Moon Jam will be performing a mix of traditional and original music.
The Hartwick Pines Logging Museum is a field site of the Michigan Historical Museum that interprets Michigan’s white pine logging era of 1840-1910. Black Iron Days is sponsored by the Friends of Hartwick Pines. All proceeds go toward interpretive and educational programs at the park.
The park is located at 4216 Ranger Rd. in Grayling in Crawford County. The event is free, however, a Recreation Passport is required for vehicles entering Hartwick Pines. For details on the program, call the park at 989-348-7068."
