Farm Events

Chickasaw Farm (Sheila and Pat Henry) now offers monthly seminars/demonstrations from April to November. It all began with informal spin ins at the wool store, but when Sheila realized how great the interest was, it morphed into a more structured schedule of events.

The seminars run from 10 am to 12 noon. Seminar cost is $30.00 plus supplies, potluck lunch included. Those who are so inclined may stay to spin and knit through the afternoon.

Seminar Schedule

April 14, 2012: Shearing day at the farm. You can choose a fleece on the sheep and watch as it is sheared and skirted. There will be a hot pot of something savory cooking on the stove and lots to see. Check out the farm store for rovings, yarns and finished items.

At this time the other months are still open, but Sheila is brimming with ideas, from microwave and kettle dyeing, camelids, weaving, and fleece from start to finish. Check this page for updates and/or let her know where your interests lie. Contact Sheila at

or phone her at 231-832-1821.
