Join us for conversation, crafting and relaxation.
David is a well-known and respected restorer of spinning wheels in the Twin Cities. He restores and repairs spinning wheels and can help you with your spinning wheel problems.
David plans to bring some examples of his craft and will be available to answer the questions concerning repairs or restorations. He will also bring samples and photos that will answer questions you may have about how wheels should work. He can do minor repairs on site. If he can’t fix your wheel at the festival, he is able to repair it at his home.
David will be available during vendor hours Saturday. He will be available Sunday until 2:00 pm.
Billabong Border Collies Sheep Dog Demonstrations
Tracy Kobberdahl has been training dogs professionally for over 25 years. Her kennel is Billabong Border Collies, where she trains border collies to herd sheep and cattle. In her demonstrations she will explain the “how to’s” of herding and training a herding dog from puppy to fully trained adult. She will talk about her training, which uses the interaction of the dog’s body language; the sheep’s flocking instinct; and her own body language, words and whistles to have the dog do what she intends. Tracy will make people laugh and understand what herding is all about!
See Saturday & Sunday’s schedules for demo times.
