Meadows of Dan 6th annual Folk Fair

Meadows of Dan had it's 6th annual Folk Fair, it's an exciting time of the year for us here at the Meadows, the weather is starting to chill a bit, some of the trees are starting to change.
When I was a kid I used to dream of living in Andy's Mayberry, and I found it here. Where folks all knew each other.I do believe this is God's country, It's not only the scenery, but it's also the people. This is the only place I know where people that don't know you, will wave  as they drive by.

There is a lot to see in the mountains of Virginia, we are right off from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Fall is just around the corner, I will put up pictures of the leaves changing soon.

 We had the privilege of setting up our pottery at the Meadow's Edge Knife Shop, and Antique's front porch.  Here is my husband Toby doing what he does best.

On the other side was Paula Melton local artist who's original water color
picture won 1st prize celebrating the Blue Ridge Parkway 75th Anniversary this year.
Here is Paula Melton painting.
Here are some of her original pictures.

On the other side of us is the Greenberry House the place to come and learn everything you wanted to know about yarn, and spinning. The lovey Leslie Shelor demonstrating how to make yarn from scratch.

She carries the softest, silkiest yarns, you'd ever want to touch. She has a knitting and crocheting group, on Thursday nights where I am learning how to knit ,and even better yet how to read those patterns.
