The central hub for Santa Fe is El Museo Cultural Museum, hosted by Las Tejedoras Guild. There will be a total of 41 sites in the Crawl with 19 in Santa Fe. It is our pleasure to be one of the sites in Santa Fe. Come to our ranch where you will not only meet our alpacas, but also see some of the fiber processing steps we do here at WSR using the fleece picker, the electric carder, the skirting screen and maybe some dyeing. On Sunday Judy Chapman will be demonstrating dimensional needle felting.  Hand dyed yarn, roving, alpaca fleece blankets, alpaca felted soaps, hand knitted accessories and much more will be in the studio. Bring the whole family.

We are being sponsored by Utopia, the General Store for the Modern Age. 10% off your purchase when you show them your stamped Crawl Passport. Thank you Utopia.
