Race to the finish: Artists for Wild Mustangs Show


With only 2 weeks until the Artists for Wild Mustangs Show, production has gone into high gear at the Ranch. Literally all the horizontal surfaces, and some of the vertical ones, are covered by a scarf or hat, and Mom is still knitting.

This will be our second year at the show, which features drawings, paintings, photography, greeting cards, jewelry, knit items, and much more, all to benefit the Cimarron Sky Dog Horse Rescue. A large percentage of the sale of each item is donated to the horse rescue, where it goes towards acquiring more range land and fodder for the winter (the exact percentage is set by the artists themselves).

Dad coined the name for this one: “Ice cream and sprinkles”.

In addition to our usual scarves and hats, we’ll have quite a few skeins of yarn for sale, and an entirely new product: scarf pins. Aunt Geri and I will be demonstrating our spinning at the show, and Mom will be knitting. And I’m sure we’ll all be drinking wine!

If you are in the Denver, Colorado area on August 4th, and are interested in coming by let me know in the comments and I’ll get you the information.

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.

    Good luck with it. It’s a wonderful idea and such pretty merchandise, I’m sure. I like the name of the coloured scarf. Clever Dad!
