Episode 10 – State Fair!


Mel and Deborah celebrate their tenth episode with a visit to Rhinebeck for the NY Sheep & Wool Festival.

The knitters (and hippies) come out in force! Mel thinks that everyone is crazy.
(Seriously…that auctioneer isn’t using words. Is that what it sounds like when someone speaks in tongues?)
Rhinebeck seems to be the ultimate pick-up joint, for a bargain!
Melanie would rather be hooking…and would prefer to be warm. Maybe both at the same time.

Interviews With:
Claudia from Eastport Yarns (eastportyarns.com)
