Shearing Day at Little Farm in the Woods

May 20, 2016,  10:00 am 

8189 Friendsville Road, Seville, Ohio

Come for a fun day—Watch the alpacas being sheared.  Check out the creativity on the porch where spinners, weavers and knitters are producing beautiful items.  Some items may be for sale.  Enjoy being on the farm.  I will have  pots of soup on and iced tea. There will be other food goodies to enjoy.

Directions:  I-71 to rte. 224.  Go west on Rte. 224 past the truck stops. At the light by Cloverleaf High School (Friendsville Road) turn right.  My farm is about ¾ of a mile north on the right side. Turn right into my drive just past a sign for Kennard Road.  We sit back from the road.

OR

From Rte. 42 go south through Lafayette and up the hill.  Near the top Friendsville Road angles off to the left only.  Just past the second intersection you will see my address on a telephone pole on the left.  It is the second drive on the left past the second intersection.

Questions?  Please contact me at cgthombs98@gmail.com or 330-421-1932.

We hope you will join us.

First Day of Spinzilla


For the first day of Spinzilla we gathered at Nancy’s house. We moved from the porch to the drive when the sun moved and it started to get cooler. 

The bobbins are filling up.
